Exeter-Milligan Update: Art Class

Jill Shipley’s Art I classes at Exeter – Milligan have just completed their “Where’s Waldo” project where they drew images of things they liked.  The students worked on overlapping images, creating unity using different media, and balancing their picture with images and color.

They hid a stick “Waldo” in their picture and it was fun trying to find them.  Pictured are the some students with their projects: Dusty Axline, Derek Luzum, Kyle Jensen and Brittni Kotas.

Exeter-Milligan Update: Second Graders Choose Wisely

What makes a meal balanced? Mrs. Marla Weber's Second graders at Exeter-Milligan learned the answer to this and other nutritional information in their recent health unit. These students studied the food pyramid and other components to a healthy diet.  They created menus that not only used knowledge of the food pyramid, but made certain their menus had listed food with varying color, texture, temperature and taste. These menus were submitted to the cooking staff for evaluation. After being accepted for all necessary criteria, the second grade menus will be prepared by the school cooking staff for use in the school lunch program.

Exeter-Milligan Update: Fifth Graders learn about minerals

The Exeter-Milligan fifth graders, with the tutelage of their teacher Mr. Brent Zoubek, have been hard at work learning about and exploring different minerals.  They have learned about what a mineral is, how they form, and how to identify them by using the different properties.  We have discussed the minerals that we use in our everyday lives and the importance of recycling so we have these things for years to come.   
Shown in the second picture:Macy Due, Trever Zelenka, Theron Odvody, and Joel Klemm perform a streak test on various minerals.  
Shown in the first picture:  the fifth grade class works in groups to explore and test different minerals.
