Rogers Students Create Interdisciplinary Science Projects

Rogers Elementary School students recently presented their Research & Science Fair to fellow students and family members. Teachers Jill Smith and Elizabeth Edwards focused  on studying and researching a topic in science. All of the projects were completed at home.

“We wanted to give them the opportunity to show what they learned in multiple ways – research paper, creative project and speaking to visitors,” said Mrs. Smith. “Our hats are off to the families who got involved and supported their child by working on the project and by visiting on the day of the Research and Science Fair.”

Mrs. Edwards’ students created science experiments as a natural progression of a discovery and invention unit. Mrs. Smith’s students read a fictional book called Guardians of Ga’hoole by Kathryn Lasky inspiring curiosity, which led to supplementing their understanding through research of owls, birds of prey and the sky – constellations to planets.
