Scholar Daily News – Debra Galler
This week in Scholar Daily News, the students have officially published their first few news pieces! On Monday and Tuesday, we did an in-depth study of the mock trial case, as that’s what the students wanted to focus on. To see the articles, click here.

Exploring Plate Tectonics – Sarah Moser
Our exploring plate tectonics group is off to a great start. This week is all about creating models of the Earth, its layers and internal activity, and the movement of the crust; clementines were are first resource that represented our Earth! On Tuesday we focused on the Earth’s crust and the different ways that the plates move as modeled by graham crackers. Next, we will dive inside the Earth to learn about convection with ‘magical’ convection fluid.
We will also spend some time discovering more about all of the incredible geological activity currently happening throughout the world! To culminate, we will create a 3D, and more importantly a deliciously edible, model of the Earth’s layers and the types of tectonic plate boundaries.
