Technology in the Classroom

Mrs. Mann's 6th-grade science class has been busy, again, using the school's technology to create Power Point Presentations for their science projects.   Naomi did an outstanding job with her Power Point Presentation on Early Astronomers.   This is just another example of the amazing things that are happening at Houston Elementary School!

6th-Grade's Guinea Pig

After much debate and discussion, the students in Mrs. Mann's science/ language class have finally arrived at a decision as to which animal will become their new class pet.   The unanimous decision is a guinea pig.  Over the past week, the students worked diligently to compile research in order to become knowledgable on the proper way to care for a guinea pig and created PowerPoints. Now that the students have become "authorities" on guinea pigs, they are eagerly awaiting the arrival of the newest and smallest member of Houston Elementary School's 6th grade class.
