CLARK — Students at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark made Facebook-style social media profiles for fictional characters in their English class and learned to graph data in science class last week.
It is apparent that kids love using technology and social media to share ideas, photographs, and memories with one another. Students in Ms. Hamilton’s 7th grade classes at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark, explored character development by putting their knowledge of smart phone applications and social networking to good use. They were to artistically design, either by hand or by using computer software, fictional Facebook-style diaries for the main character in their independent reading books. Some students even used “hashtags” to make their characters relate better to modern society. Pictured above are NikkiAnne DiCosmo, Christina Sheafer, and Justin Rafferty with their character development projects.
Students in Ms. DeFalco’s sixth grade science classes at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark participated in a lesson on how to graph scientific data. In order to be a comprehensive scientist, students must be able to take data and construct a chart to illustrate what they have discovered. Students began by researching the various gases that are present in the atmosphere. After conducting their research, they had to use a pie chart to accurately show the quantity of each gas in atmosphere as a percent of the whole. Students used mathematical equations, protractors, and exceptional scientific skills to accurately display their findings. Pictured above, Allie Compton, Sophia Bizink, Emma Hilton, and Grace Gull show their “Atmospheric Gases” pie charts.
