Science Club: Project Clean Stream


On Saturday, April 1, our Science Club contributed to the Project Clean Stream effort to collect shoreline trash throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed. Last year, the initiative had 74,000 volunteers picking up 3.3 million pounds of trash. Five science club members (Brayden Walters, Kayleen Walters, Jordana Capp, Rachel Hazzard, and Sylas Merrell) along with their wonderful parents met at the Sassafras Resources Management Area for a three hour adventure of fun-filled work. We salute the work done daily by our environmental friends in Kent County and we were eager to do our part to help keep our "Great Shellfish Bay" beautiful.

Fun With Math!


The 4th graders are writing equivalent fractions to add two fractions with respective denominators of 10 and 100 (4.NF.7). For example: 8/10 + 15/100 To play the game, students roll two die. The first dice tells them what tenths fraction to write down and then, they roll the second dice and that tells them what hundredths fraction to write down. Students add the two fractions and find the answer on the game board and cover it with a colored counter. The first student to get "Tic Tac Toe" (or three counters in a row) is the winner!  


Science Club students and parents engaged in two sessions of animal dissection. The first session, everyone dissected an earthworm. Students were able to identify many of the earthworm's internal organs, such as the crop, gizzard, esophagus, and hearts. In the second session, participants dissected an animal of their choice. There was dissection of dogfish sharks, octopi, starfish, perch, and stingrays. Much learning and fun was had by all.  Please select "read more" for pictures! 


The Galena Elementary Science Club, led by science teacher Tracy Hodge, is doing some exciting things! From making turbines to disassembling machines, students are learning about science in fun ways. We hope you will join us. We always have a tremendous turnout, but always have room for more!
