CLARK — Students at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark have been reviewing math concepts, learning about figurative language, and studying the Periodic Table of Elements recently.
Students in Miss Faro’s seventh grade mathematics classes at Carl H. Kumpf School in Clark have spent the beginning of the school year reviewing topics learned in sixth grade. During the review unit, the class related the Geometry section to real world word problems involving finding the area of rooms, calculating volume and painting walls. Students frequently come up to the SMART Board to answer questions and display their work.

Students in Ms. DeFalco’s eighth grade science classes at the Carl H. Kumpf School in Clark got creative with the periodic table of elements. Students where given a blank license plate template and asked to create their own personalized element license plate. Students used proper element format and included atomic numbers, atomic symbols, and atomic mass for each element. Pictured above, Emily Laughery and Samantha Ianco show off their license plates.

Sixth grade language arts students at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark recently completed a unit on figurative language. To demonstrate their understanding of the topic, students created a “Fall into Figurative Language” bulletin board. Each student was responsible for writing an example of figurative language to describe the fall. The students enjoyed using their descriptive writing skills to welcome the season.

Students in Ms. DeFalco’s sixth grade science classes at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark ventured outside to perform an experiment that tested how absorption and reflection affects temperature. After learning about solar radiation, reflection, and absorption, students conducted an experiment in which they would recreate a cloudy atmosphere and a clear atmosphere. Students used plastic cups, white paper, plastic wrap, rubber bands, and digital thermometers to record how temperature was affected by reflection and absorption. Students worked side by side to record the temperatures in each cup for 15 minutes. In conclusion, students agreed that the white paper, or “cloudy atmosphere”, reflected solar radiation much more than the clear atmosphere.
