Halloween- themed math 🎃
Me Merriott’s homeroom celebrated Halloween with a pizza party and some in room trick or treating!
JAMP students considered what would happen if their body didn't have bones through this engaging lesson. In the activity, Skeleton Hand, students combine science with art: they trace their hands, then add see-through bones to their picture, making their own skeleton hand. Lesson shows them how bones and joints help give our hand shape and help us move! Perfect project for Halloween.
Excited to see all the JADE students when we resume in-person instruction tomorrow!
