    Second Graders Journey Back to Medieval Times

    As part of their cultural and historical study of Medieval times and castles, second graders were treated to a special guest on Tuesday! Chainmail expert (and cousin to teacher Ruth Rosenthal) Harry Miller visited the second grade and began by explaining how chainmail—a type of armor consisting of small metal rings linked together in a pattern to form a mesh—was made and used during Medieval times. He then discussed the various uses in the 21st century: in The Lord of the Rings trilogy, in the game Minecraft, and how even deep sea divers use chainmail to protect against sharks. It was then the second graders' turn to make chainmail; using pliers and aluminum rings, they followed step by step instructions and created their own...MORE PHOTOS

    Fifth Graders Become Environmental Journalists, Present Ocean Research

    Over the past few months, fifth grade students have become environmental journalists, researching and investigating the ocean: the landscape, its place in the water cycle, its variety of zones, its current movement, its contribution to our atmosphere, and its rich diversity of creatures. This study has taken our students to the Marin Science Institute, California Academy of Sciences, and the Sausalito Bay Model. Last week, the fifth graders became the teachers, educating the lower school and parents about issues and problems plaguing the ocean. Working in pairs, students created trifold posters explaining the issues, what is being done in the world to help the issue, and what they can do to help. New this year... MORE PHOTOS

    Google Earth a Springboard for Fifth Graders' Abstract Prints

    In a polyboard print-making project entitled “Meaningful Places,” fifth grade art students turned to Google Earth as a starting point for abstract images. After drawing their Google Earth images in pen and ink—concentrating on adding texture and detail—they transferred the images onto polyboard and made a series of one- and two-drop prints. Their portfolios are now filled with beautiful prints, only a fraction of which are shown here... MORE PHOTOS

    Sixth Graders Share Hindu and Buddhist Folk Tales with Second Grade

    In two collaborative lessons, sixth grade social studies students got together with second graders who are currently studying India, to share what they have learned about Hindu and Buddhist folk tales. (The other second grade section is investigating Japanese culture). On Tuesday, February 17, the sixth graders directed the second graders in short adaptations of the Ramayana, a Hindu folk tale (c. 300 BCE). The following day, the sixth graders read to the second graders stories about the life of Buddha, and then illustrated scenes from the stories on laptops. Who says ancient literature can't be fun?

    Seventh Graders Explore Jewish Values and Environmental Sustainability

    With the goal of making a connection between daily life, Jewish values, social justice, and enviromental stability, seventh graders took a field trip to Whole Foods and Safeway on Wednesday. Using the Sustainable Buying Guide of Hazon—a Jewish environmental organization—to guide them, the seventh graders practiced "Value-conscious Grocery Shopping." Working in groups, students were divided into sections of the grocery store (meat, dairy, fruits & vegetables, dry goods) to look into sustainable, local, and organic food; where the food comes from; and how much it costs. This was an exciting experience for our students that is relevant to their lives, teaches important values, and contributes to environmental sustainability resources in the Bay Area. "Our students realized that they had never taken the time to examine the labels and wondered if others really did...They are looking forward to helping their parents shop and together making more mindful decisions in an effort to better our planet," said middle school Judaic studies teacher Jody Bloom.
