    Fifth Graders Welcome the New Year By Providing Holiday Treats

    To welcome a sweet year ahead, fifth grade students prepared trays of Rosh Hashanah treats for each grade, with the customary apples and honey, as well as a piece of honey cake. In groups of two or three, fifth grade students wished each class a sweet and happy new year, and together they recited the blessings over the food. Then it was time to enjoy the treats! Thank you to the fifth grade class for these wonderful treats. Wishing everyone in our BHDS community a shana tovah u’metukah (good and sweet new year)! MORE PHOTOS

    Third Grade Soars through the Scientific Method

    To learn the importance of the scientific method in identifying a problem and then creating an experiment to test that problem, the third grade class designed paper airplanes from start to finish. Through brainstorming and rounds of voting, the class determined they wanted to design paper airplanes that would fly the farthest (other options included longest flying times and best accuracy). The class was also able to control some of the variables (e.g. using one type of paper, no tape or glue), an important aspect of any experiment. Once the prototype paper airplanes were created, it was out to Swig Field to test their models. Some airplanes traveled 0 inches, while 17 traveled over 200 inches. The longest flight came in at 639 inches! The scientific method provided a great framework for the students to take the first round of testing and create hypotheses before tweaking their designs. The second round of flying not only proved a huge success with a large increase in distance, but also helped demonstrate to the third graders the significance of the scientific method.

    Apples—at the Core of Kindergarten Learning

    This week kindergarteners got a taste of the importance of apples across both the general and Jewish studies curricula. Seeing that apples and honey are on the tips of our tongues this time of year, the teachers are using apples as an overarching theme—one could say, a "common core"—to create engaging, meaningful learning experiences for the students. Using themes as a way to integrate math, science, language arts, social studies, and Jewish studies sparks student interest and motivates them to learn.

    Eighth Graders Experiment with Copper and Sulfur

    Eighth graders were hard at work in the science lab this week learning about reactants and products by conducting an experiment in which they heated copper and sulfur and observed the changes. This experiment tasked our students with calculating the change in mass of the reactant and the product, visualizing their data in a histogram, and drawing conclusions from their findings. What a sight it was in the lab when the reactants (copper and sulfur) were heated to create a yellow swirl of smoke in a test tube! MORE PHOTOS
