Students in Mrs. Murphy's class have been learning about electricity. They have talked about positive and negative charges in static and current electricity. To learn in a hands-on way, the students created a flashlight on a craft stick using a mini LED light, watch battery, binder clips, and some copper wire/tape. Students were challenged as they worked to make sure that the batteries were placed on the correct side of the charge which would then power their lights. The students had lots of fun once they got their lights working!

Volunteers from the Springville Museum of Art visited our 4-6 grades on Wednesday, January 9th. In 6th grade, classes rotated to Mrs. Weier's class for writing and learned about how curating an art exhibition is just like writing an essay! After discussing different works of art, students worked in groups to brainstorm a main idea, select various pieces of art, and write a synopsis to create their own art exhibition.
