The SMS first graders were “rocking” and rolling today, learning about the three types of rocks: sedimentary, metamorphic, and igneous. We enjoyed this tasty STEM project because we used chocolate and marshmallows to explain how each type of rock is created. The best part was eating our “rocks” at the end.
Sonia Tranter discussed with our 5th grade religion students about the different Saints and challenges they went through. Being a person wit a physical challenge she believes that God uses episodes in our life to help “smooth the rough edges” of our soul like water in a stream smoothes rocks in a river. Each student received a rock and the rock created a cross. We are all part of the cross and the body of Christ.
