On Friday, November 1st, students had their second trip to Brooklyn Landmark Elementary School. They read the book The Good Egg and lead students through a few comprehension activities.
Did you know that within the digits of pi everyone in the world can find their birthday? That’s something the 7th grade learned when they explored Real Numbers.
J – We started to learn new topic “Roll in the Galil and the Golan.” This new topic describes the North of Israel and is part of a unit which helps students expand narratives. We began our virtual journey to Galil (name of part of Israel) from Pki’in. Through Hebrew language the students have a chance to learn about the history of Israel, different nationalities and cultures in Israel.
Students have been focused in each science class in order to continue creating their Rube Goldberg machines. With positive group collaboration and determination for success, students have been handling challenges as true professional engineers. We will continue to work on these projects and start focusing on the technology components of their machines. Time is flying fast, soon it will be Friday, December 13 when we present these projects in the gym. More information about this Rube Goldberg STEAM event will be coming soon.
7th graders are nearly done with our first unit for the book of Bmidbar/Numbers: can Bnai Yisrael build a community in the desert that will help them to recover from the trauma of slavery; bond as a group; and grow as individuals? Students have excelled at translating and discussing the Torah text, building grammar skills, and learning how to ask powerful, text-based questions. We’ve also done some skits!
