CLARK — Seventh graders at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark recently learned about story elements in their language arts class, while sixth graders have been studying air pollution in science class.
Seventh graders in Suzanne Hamilton’s language arts classes at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark reviewed story elements using a short story that they read in class. Hamilton would call out an element and the students would jot down a part of the story that they felt best fit into that category. After this, the students walked around the classroom and posted their sticky notes in specific locations to separate the different elements. Pictured above, Gabriella Stawinski, Victoria Torres, Victoria Zatko, and Michael Shackleton stand next to their “Resolution” sticky notes on the classroom door.
Students in Danielle DeFalco’s sixth grade Earth Science classes at Carl H. Kumpf Middle School in Clark designed their own public service announcement pollution posters.They have been learning about pollution and the effect it has on both the atmosphere and all the living things within the atmosphere. Students worked in “pollution research teams” to investigate which cities had the highest rates of pollution in the United States. After coming up with a list of the top 20 most polluted cities, students designed posters to promote a healthier, pollution free city. Posters were filled with catchy slogans, detailed illustrations, and tips for people on how to lower their carbon footprint. Pictured above, R.J. Talarico, Anthony Diaz, Jenna Wiese, and Samara Infantino show off their pollution posters.
