Mr. Gentry's sophomore class has been learning all about soils. 1/2 the class earned spots on the soil judging team and were out at the district contest. Those that stayed back made their own "soil mixture" trail mix with marshmallows (Silt), M&M's (Clay), Pretzels (Sand). They then determined what percent of their mixture were each ingredient, then determined what their soil type was based on the soil texture triangle. They then researched the best uses for their soil types in the "judging soil for rural and urban use" book.
Mr. Gentry's 8th grade Intro to Agriculture class has been learning all about the soil under under us. They learned that there are 6 different layers of soil and what the function of each layer is. They got to put their knowledge to the test by building cereal soil horizon posters. They may have eaten more cereal than they glued down but it was a fun activity that helped them understand the concept!
Mr. Demster's Freshmen health classes recently completed a commercial project. This activity was used as an enrichment for a recent marketing and advertising health unit. The goal of the commercial was to either make their product sound healthy through the use of marketing techniques, or make their product sound healthier by comparing it to an unhealthy product. The following links are to the top two commercials, for each category, as voted on by the class. https://drive.google.com/file/d/14sHo5yp0Wzk1SWktRTGWRAKjAXsAVRsV/view?usp=sharing https://drive.google.com/file/d/1-F1PpCC3p5nntlT2mh3FHbPUNCcgbVGU/view?usp=sharing

We had Dairy herdsman, several cops, a yoga instructor, Welders, and college professors to name a few!
