School Projects

The end of the school year is unbelievably quickly approaching so that means some school projects have invaded our home. (Exactly two weeks from today we'll have a 3rd and 6th grader?!) Both girls worked hard on their science fair projects this year. Haley chose to do an experiment on rocks.

And Hannah studied the difference in sound and volume based on the size of drums.

Both girls participated in the Spelling Bee this year for the first time. They both made it to the final spell off but not much further than that. They were gracious runners-up, loved the experience and Haley can't wait to try again next year.

And last but not least, Hannah has had the fantastic opportunity to participate in the High-Cap program this year and their last assignment was to create a ferris wheel as pairs using whatever materials they could find in the piles provided for them. I was more than impressed at what came home! Amazing what a little brainstorming and come creativity can get ya!! It actually turned around . . . and the girls thought to put pennies on the folded playing card seats so they were weighted and didn't flip over.

It's been an amazing year of learning and growing for both girls and I couldn't be prouder of all they have done.
