In Latin, sixth grade students enjoyed the beautiful weather while creating domi (houses). Students used chalk to draw the various parts of a Roman house, including tablinum, cunicula, hortus, atrium, taberna, and cubiculum. Groups drew and labeled all parts of their houses and included furniture, fountains, and plants. Students hugely enjoyed the opportunity to showcase their artistic talents while learning more about Romanorum domi. #WhyNysmith ... See MoreSee Less

2nd Grade Science: Magnetism
In Science, second grade continued their study of magnets. Using the scientific method, students studied the different strength of two magnets and compared the number of pennies that each magnet was capable of holding. Students recorded their materials, methods, observations and results. It was discovered that the U-shaped magnet was stronger than the straight magnet and could hold more pennies. One test resulted in 75 pennies being held by the U-shaped magnet, to the surprise and delight of the students! Immediately following this test, students hastened to record their data. #WhyNysmith
