Mantis Shrimp t-shirts

If you are interested in ordering a mantis shrimp logo t-shirt, we will put in a group order the week after spring break. This will enable us to get free shipping. Check out the different style options here.

SCIence FRIday

Image result for skeleton

We will have SCI FRI on Thursday this week. Meet on 3/9 at 10am if you would like to learn about the functions and structures of the skeletal system. We will also study the names of some of the bones and identify them on the skeleton. Lots of options for further investigation to earn a badge or put an entry into your portfolio.



Friday Pi Day!!

Since we will be out of school for Spring Break on the official Pi Day, we will be having Friday Pi Day this Friday, 3/10. There will be activities related to the number pi, including a pie eating contest…if you bring pie! 🙂 Bring a pie and dress prepared to get messy!

(Mrs. Frye didn’t want to have a Pi The Teacher day… )

Edit My Junk Mail

I mentioned this in Meta the other day…

It might be a fun exercise to copy edit or rewrite for clarity a classic piece of phishing junk mail. I copied a few particularly egregious phishing-style mail messages out of my SPAM folder and shared them below. This activity would probably be a good fit for a Copy Editing badge or Editing or Word Choice and Grammar. I imagine it could also be the inspiration for a creative writing piece (Creative Non Fiction, Poetry, Dialogue/Skit, Satire, Short Story). You could use it to explore the Economics of phishing emails, the politics of Nigerian royal families,  Online Crime and Identity Theft.
