Middle School Happenings:

What have middle schoolers been learning?

  • 6th grade science students have begun studying Newton’s Laws of Motion. As part of their studies, they built their own “Newton’s Cradles.”
  • In 6th grade social studies, during a unit on China, students learned about Confucianism and morality. Students also delved into the topic of relativism and discussed how people decide what is right or wrong.
  • In 8th grade social studies, students participated in a U.S. Civil War simulation. They tried to imagine what it would be like to be a soldier fighting against one’s own countrymen.
