Science Stuff by Matt Nicholas, E-M Science Instructor
This week in 8th grade Earth Science, we are studying the theory of plate tectonics. Plate Tectonics is a combination of the ideas of continental drift and seafloor spreading. Together these ideas help us understand the processes inside the earth that shape what we see on the map. We will be demonstrating how tectonic plates interact with each other by using graham crackers as crustal plates and frosting as magma. We will be investigating how mountains and volcanoes are formed as well as other geologic features.

Each of Mr. Brian Murphy's classes at Exeter-Milligan watches and discusses the news daily. The eight grade American History class is learning about events leading up to the Civil War. In high school American History class, we are finishing the unit covering World War II. Currently, students in World Geography are learning about Central America. In Post World War II History, students are learning about the 1980s and the fall of the Soviet Union.

Exeter-Milligan 4th Grade News by Shelli Mueller
The fourth grade room has been exploding with technology. As a 1:1 iPad elementary, we have the capability to do a lot of Project Based Learning. Using the iPads, the students are individually learning the content of the subject.
Recently in Nebraska Studies, we used a website called Thinglink to create projects. The students had to look up information on a topic and link it all together.
In Science, they used an app called Skitch to label the layers of Earth’s core. They also used an app called Pic Collage to collect pictures of weathering, erosion, hurricanes, tornados, floods. They also use the app Zondle to study for tests in Science and Social Studies. I love that they are exploring on their own and learning in their own way.
