Middle School science happenings
Students in Brandy Blakeley’s middle school science class are busy this week learning about human digestion and are engaging in a lab about the small intestine and how food molecules are absorbed into the bloodstream.
Each week students are given a “Wonder of the World” topic to write about over the week. Some of the topics this year include: The Golden Egg, Snail Mucus, Science in our everyday lives.
Blakeley also teaches two enrichment classes on Wednesday called Astrology and Gumshoeing. Astrology encompasses all things celestial and astrological. In Gumshoeing they are learning ways in which mysteries and mind games work, using fingerprinting, code writing and the solving of a crime or two.
