Last school year, Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer’s students were inspired after one of their peers brought a painted rock to school one day and shared it with the class. The rock was painted with a cat and an inspirational message that said “Smile.” On the back of the rock was a hashtag, #thekindnessrockproject, and the words “keep or pass along for someone to find.” The students became very curious and began asking questions. Mrs. Pierce and Mrs. Shaffer realized that this would be a great opportunity to get their students involved in a project that promoted positivity and mindfulness. They had the students turn this into a research assignment and find out exactly why receiving a positive message could change a person’s mindset.

Students in Ms. Senchak’s 8th grade science classes spent the month of September leaning about the Scientific Method.  The six ‘steps’ were discussed in detail, with focus on the importance of running a controlled experiment in terms of control/experimental groups, independent/dependent variables and constants.  Students analyzed a variety of science scenarios to reinforce terms along with analyzing data tables and drawing conclusions. As a conclusion to the unit of study, students completed a fun Mentos Lab Investigation where each group was given Coke, Diet Coke and Coke Zero to test for the biggest chemical reaction.  Students applied knowledge of controlled experiments in order to run the experiment. Three trials of each soda were completed and data was recorded and analyzed. In the end, the overall data showed that Coke Zero is it, producing the best chemical reaction out of all three sodas!
