Students working with Mrs. Morris have been piloting a Museum of Science program using the coding program Scratch. The students were tasked with the job to teach others about environmental conservation. Their new game needed to answer the question: “What will players learn about the environment or green energy by playing your game?”

International Recipe Book

A tradition in Mrs. Boucher's class in the month of December is to gather holiday family favorite recipes and as an added treat this year students from their partner JDO class from Wales also contributed their family recipes.

During a Google Hangout, the idea was discussed with both classes.



Around Thanksgiving, the students are asked to find a favorite recipe when their family is gathered together. They then create a google doc and add a picture of that food. After editing and re-editing, they are then ready to enter their recipe in the shared google slide project.
Click on the pages below to find a new recipe to add to your holiday meal.

Happy Baking and Happy Holidays!
