Arkansas History Research Projects

by Clay Dollar
DMS 8th grade students are finishing out their school year with research projects about famous Arkansans.  Students were randomly placed with a partners to research a notable Arkansan of their choice.  The presentations were made using Google slides and stored using Google drive.  Each presentation had to include names, dates, images, examples of work, career accomplishments, and other information for the person being researched.  The students had a great time finding out more about their state! Click the link below to see an example of student work.

Cow Eyes in Science

by Linda Gunnell
The 6th grade Science classes dissected cow eyes after studying the parts of the eye and their functions. Each group was given an eye and followed directions to examine the structures of the eye. The students identified the cornea, the iris, the lens, the retina, optic nerve, and the tapetum. The tapetum is the shiny backing of the cow eyeball that causes it to reflect at night. We discussed why animals would need this structure and humans do not. Enjoy photos below.
