Salt Creek Intermediate student scientists

The students of Ms. Huysman’s science class at Salt Creek Intermediate were excited to learn how the three states of matter impacted foam during an experiment.

Ms. Huysman showed the steps to the students before providing the materials for the experiment. Students were tasked with adding chemicals into a cup, in a certain order, to obtain the desired chemical reaction.

As the students began mixing the chemicals together, the reaction caused a foam that expanded. Students were excited to see the chemical and thermal changes that took place during the experiment.

Elementary students enjoy math exemplars

For the past five years, K-5 math teachers in Logan Elm’s district have been using math exemplars in their classroom as part of their math instruction.

Math exemplars are engaging math tasks, aligned to the state math standards and math practices. These math tasks allow teachers to teach and assess problem solving skills with real-world problems. Important collaboration skills are promoted as students normally complete exemplars with a partner or small group.

Exemplars also require the use of critical thinking skills, reasoning and oral and written communication skills. Exemplars allow for differentiation within a math classroom and are typically graded using a rubric.

The students love working on exemplars and persevere with classmates to find solutions to the problems.
