It's almost time for winter break, and all our students are excited for the coming weeks. To keep their wonder and sense of inquiry fresh over the winter break, check out the TED Ed videos series. There are a number of topics spanning from "How Things Work" to "Superhero Science" to "Mysteries of Vernacular." There is something to engage any child and peak their interest. In the spirit of winter break, The Science of Snowflakes is linked below. Have a wonderful rest, embracing the learner profile trait of balance.
Our students' personal projects are in full swing here at Royal Oak High School. Many have finished their product or outcome, and others are working on finishing touches and writing their report. There are many opportunities to support our students as their wrap up their work.
Finally, remind students that they can come to the remaining Personal Project Planning days (P3) on December 13 and January 10. Mr. McMann, Ms. Belzyt, and Ms. Reimold work with students after school, answering any questions they have, helping them problem solve, and supporting them as they plan their next step or work on their report. P3 days are in the multi-media room (MMR) above the learning commons, and snacks are always provided.
It truly is exciting to see our students hard at work and nearing the end of their journey. Be sure to mark your calendars for the projects exhibition on February 15th during the Royal Oak High School open house.
Ms. Belzyt is the MYP Coordinator for the Royal Oak Middle and High Schools, an IB educator, and life-long learner
