My favorite part of the rock cycle is... is that it is smooth, and different and colorful.

Yesterday we made dough and went to the garden to check some stuff out. That day we were picking up rocks and some were igneous,sedimentary,and metamorphic rocks.

My favorite part of the rock  cycle is ... metamorphic. it has ribbon - like layers caused by the heat.

My favorite part of the rock cycle is..  the metamorphic rock, heat and pressure makes this rock and when the rock comes out of the volcano it hardens.

 week 3

This is a Tarantula.  It has eight legs and it has a abdomen.  It is a big spider.  They give me chills.  Some are brown, some are black and that is my story.
I like mountains because you can see from the top of the mountain. 

We measured time by walking with a measuring wheel.

We measured and walked with a wheel all around campus. There was 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 people.  It was fun. 

The desert is the desert is the  driest  land and hottest  place on earth.
I like the chicken because they grazed like cows.  They also layed eggs and we got to bring one home.

Student observations about the first two weeks of summer school.


Spiders are good. They kill a lot of bugs.
Yesterday me and Kaydon and John went swimming at my house. 


I saw a horse and I woad a wooden horse.  I learned about plants.  My phone went off and a blue truck got stolen. 


Yesterday I waited all night catching bats with my mom and her classmates.  We caught one grey bat.  It was so cute. 

Yesterday we went out for a bike ride.  We went around campus four times.  It was tiring but good exercise. 


At the Heritage  center I saw a cool dinosaur bone and my favorite one was the saber-tooth tiger. 

A desert is a very dry place and the hottest place on earth

Yesterday we went to a farm and we saw animals and had lunch
Yesterday me and my brother and Robert were playing with a water hose. 

We planted beans and soaked the beans.  Then we put it by the window. 

Hi peeps what u doing, hiding under a tunnal, are playing game bye peeps

Yesterday I slept in bed and when I woke I was tired so I tried to fall asleep but didn't succeed.

I like STEM because we got shaving cream and a succulent and i learned that cotton candy melts in water or pop whatever that thing is we also made a structure out of gummy bears and toothpicks and marshmallows. Before that we went on a bike ride around campus. Oh yeah!

Me and my brother and my sister are at the zoo and mom and Les ate cotton candy.  We saw horses and we fed them and it was fun.

I like to go field trip to zoo and I want to see all animals.

I like stem when we made a house made of  marshmallows and gummy bears and see who's was tallest

Yesterday we went to the farm , we ate lunch there too and seen some chickens, we got to hold and keep the eggs and take them home and eat them.

When we went to the  farm  it took about 17 minutes.  When we got their we ate and then we went to see the chickens and we got to have an egg to take home. There was a dog that guarded the chicken, and it was barking at us. There was also a lot of cow patties on the ground. Then we saw cows in  the field.

We went to the farm. When we got to the farm we ate lunch. When we got done eating, we went to see the chickens and I got to hole a chicken. Then lady at the farm gave us chicken eggs. Then we walked back and we say a dog at the barn. Then we inside a building that had lot of refrigerators  with lots of meat. We bought to small bags of  sausage meat.  I love seeing the farm.

2018 Student created writings: Trip to Heritage Center: What I found at the Heritage Center really interesting.

What I learned at the Heritage Center is that back in the old day they didn’t  have no color in the
TV and it was based on the day it was happening and that day is what happened.  

The space suits were made out of leather back
there was a pink telephone that looked so rusty like back in the old days

The Heritage Center  By Rita:

My study was on Buffalo Bird Woman “Maaxiiriwia” also “Maxidiwiac”or “Waheenee” they all mean Buffalo Bird Woman. She was part of the Three Affiliated Tribe. The most important  part is she survived the smallpox virus after almost her whole tribe died. She tried to keep her tradition going but all of the kids wanted to play video games. She lived by the Knife River in earth lodges. There were two camps. The summer and winter camp. The summer camp had better earth lodges and it was just a couple miles away from the Knife River. The winter camps were sloppy because the women didn’t have time to make it nice.  But it was down by the river were it was cool and they could see the sparkling water. It took the women and men to build the earth lodge about 2-3 weeks. The reason why they called it earth lodge is because you build it out of the earth from sticks and dirt. Buffalo Bird Woman was born in 1839 and died in 1932 so she was about 93 years old. When she caught the smallpox she fought through it because she was a strong native woman but it left her blind. That’s all folks. My relative Buffalo Bird Woman was strong.

Student review of Summer School created 2016 

Hi I'm Brenden and I'm going to tell you about summer school. You would think the teachers are mean but they are really nice.  In summer school we learn about new things. In the morning we meet at the cafeteria at 8:30.  We eat and chat and watch TV and at 9:00 we walk to the school.  We have to navigate through the crazy sidewalks of Untied Tribes Technical College to reach the school (Just kidding, it's just two blocks away).  When we reach the school we go straight to the classroom, and we sit down and read our books.  At 9:30 we get our notebooks and write down notes about what we have read.  We go out for recess at 10:00.  Sometimes we watch a movie when we come in from recess.  At 11:15 we head out to recess and at 11:30 go back to the cafeteria where we eat.  Sometimes the TV is on and we can watch TV.  We wait until the teacher tells us we can go dump our trays.  We wait until everybody is done and we go to Boys and Girls club.  In Boys and Girls club we play on the computers and sometimes we go in the game room to play X-box and stuff like that.  On Thursdays we get to go swimming after lunch.  I think everybody should go to summer school because it is fun and you get to do fun stuff.
