PHOTO Galleries


 PHOTOTitle-earthquake.jpgStudents worked in teams to investigate Earthquakes, Faults, Tsunamis, and Volcanoes. Each team was assigned a web page on a Google Site website set up for the project. The page had to include a location map, a filled-out data chart, and an annotated photo gallery of pictures and videos.  


 PHOTOTitle-MEmuseum.jpgSeventh grade social studies students in Karen Purdee's classes used their modeling skills to create replicas of famous buildings, landmarks, and objects of the Middle East. 



Sixth grade students in Connie Schneider's and Chris Meisel's classes created dioramas using modeling clay and cardboard. This project was a culminating activity after much research work on countries in South America, Africa, and Asia.


PHOTOTitle-FloatBoat.JPGUsing only plastic bottles for flotation, students were challenged to build a "boat" that could be raced the length of the pool. Awards were given for speed as well as style. This was a culminating event for the study of density.



PHOTOTitle-SchoolTrips.JPG From 2010 to 2015 the destination was Toyon Bay on Catalina Island, better known as CIMI or Catalina Island Marine Institute. We spent 5 days at the camp. From 1992 to 2009 I took seventh grade students to Newfound Harbor Marine Institute on Big Pine Key in Florida for a marine biology adventure. Over 1000 students participated in this trip over the years.


PHOTOTitle-Wax.JPGFirst, choose someone famous. Then dress up as that character and memorize a short introductory statement. Put together a 3 panel board explaining your character. Finally, it's time for the show where other classes and parents come to visit the "Wax Museum" and learn about your character.


PHOTOtitle-Students.JPGFrom 2010 through the spring of 2016, Mr. Clauset taught 6th grade science at Chadwick School in Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA. During each of those six school years, photography was used to chronicle and capture the many activities of the 6th grade year. These photo galleries span the range of science, math, and humanities projects, as well as whole-class trips and activities.
