Exeter-Milligan Update: Harvesting History

History Harvest Project
By Brian Murphy, Exeter-Milligan Social Studies Instructor

Eight Exeter-Milligan High School students traveled to the University of Nebraska at Kearney this fall to learn about the "History Harvest" project that they do. E-M students learned about recording information, scanning images, metadata, and photographing artifacts from several UNK professors and graduate students. On December 14, E-M students went to the Exeter Senior Center to scan images from local community members and begin their own "History Harvest" project. The ultimate goal is to get a collection of digital images available for people to enjoy and learn from online. Pictured from left to right are: Trever Zelenka, E-M Language Arts Teacher Ms. Ashley Stutzman, Clint Oldehoeft, Norm Yound, and Anna Sluka.

Exeter-Milligan Update: Third Grade

Third Grade Happenings at Exeter-Milligan
By Laura Steuben, E-M 3rd Grade Instructor

Our first semester at E-M has come to a close. A lot was accomplished in the Third Grade classroom this first semester. We recently completed a unit in Social Studies and learned about holidays and traditions. The students learned about ecosystems in Science. They have been working on sentence editing, parts of speech, capitalization rules and noun and verb phrases in Language Arts. In the picture below, students are writing sentences (yes, on their desks) during Language Arts that have a series of noun phrases. We are looking forward to more fun and learning opportunities in the upcoming semester!
