Students in Mrs. Crum’s Social Studies classes talked about Earth Day and the importance of protecting our plant. Towards the end of class students were able to visit different places around the planet using VR goggles. Students could immerse themselves in the mountains, oceans, desserts, or forests. Students had a great time visiting the Aurora Borealis, the coral reef, waterfalls, the rainforest, seeing polar bears and penguins, and Mount Everest.

Blue Finger Paint
During Thursday’s Blended Learning Art class, middle school students worked on Neurographic art projects. Neurographic art was invented by a psychologist to help calm the mind. It is a style of art where the artist can relax and let their mind go free while working through any anxieties or inner problems they are trying to solve. It is also called brain art. This is just one of example of the various art projects students have worked on during the course of the school year. As you can see, we have a lot of very talented students!
