Next Generation Library In Action!


 Mr. Mccallum in collaboration with our fantastic librarians put the Next Generation Library to great use this week!
SPHS Economics students are learning about the history and function of the Federal Reserve by using the Federal Reserve Museum app. After exploring the app, they are working in groups to create a mind map to illustrate their learning. Finally, they are taking a Kahoot quiz to assess what they have learned. Some students had time to create their own currency in the Federal Reserve app. Students are engaged in communicating, collaborating, thinking critically, and being creative!

Students create digital flash cards


Students in Ms. Burgess's Forensic Science classes used dis-articulated skeletons to find the bones and bone features of the human body, and then they used digital cameras to take pictures of each of them.  Using their Google Apps for Education accounts and the website flippity.net, the students created digital flash cards with pictures for each of the terms.  The students not only learned a lot while creating the flash cards, but they can use the flash cards as a study tool as well.  Check out some of the student work by using the links below.
