May Term closed on June 4th with an hour of performances in Founders Theater by the Dance class, Entrepreneurship class, and several short films by the Film class. See a Photo Gallery of shots from the performances, as well as videos of the Dance class' performances of a Hip Hop Number, a Banghra-Style Indian Dance, and "Steam Heat" from the Pajama Game. Plus watch two short films created by the Film class -- the scary Pizza Night and a compilation of Paranoid Newscasts -- that premiered at the end of May Term.
The May Term "Science and Art" class found a variety of ways to turn science projects into artworks. See a photo gallery of Flow Paintings with amazing designs using silicone to keep the paint colors separate. Plus see a gallery of Shadow Prints of natural or mechanical objects they created using coated paper and fabric that are sensitive to the ultraviolet rays in sunlight.
The May Term Habitat Class spent several days working around and inside a house under construction in Deer Park in a neighborhood of Habitat homes. They also spent a day at the local Habitat Store helping to clean up and paint tables (and each other). See photos of their work at the Habitat House and in the Habitat Store.
To finish their study of rivers, the 6th graders created cardboard boats that they got to race in the Little Spokane River on June 4, 2019. See photo galleries of Each Team's Boat and of the Cardboard Boat Races, as well as a Video of the Races. Some lasted multiple races; some didn't last as long as they hoped!
The 6th graders spent Monday, June 3 canoeing down the Little Spokane River with the May Term canoeing class. They collected junk from the river all the way to the confluence with the Spokane River, as you can see in the Photo Gallery of their canoes at the end of the day. Look for the photo of the moose that they also found in the river!
