Inquiry Units Are in Motion!

The above 4th and 5th grade students from "Team Inquiry" recently studied the Aurora Borealis or "Northern Lights." Students investigated how and where it occurs as well as the effect it has on the surrounding environment. They learned that in some areas of the world the Northern Lights illuminate the nighttime horizon as a greenish glow or sometimes a faint red color, as if the sun were rising from an unusual direction. The magnetic lines of the Northern Lights look like colorful, illuminated curtains and and can change within seconds or glow unchanging for hours. People travel thousands of miles to catch a glimpse of the spectacular beauty of the Aurora Borealis.

After producing informative trifolds advertising the Aurora Borealis, students invited Mr. Tom Karnes of LaMacchia Travel Agency to join them. They shared their learning and presented him with their trifolds. LaMacchia Travel will present them to customers considering a trip to an area of the earth from which the Northern Lights can be seen. While visiting Nash, Mr. Karnes informed students of what it's like to own a travel agency. He also encouraged our children to continue to work hard and take responsibility for their learning. Congratulations to our teachers, students, and Mr. Tom Karnes for designing and participating in a wonderful learning experience!
