Middle School and High School notes


Huron Middle School
Students in Colleen Jensen’s science class are learning about the Solar System, and the many celestial bodies that reside there! A culminating activity they created was 3D models of the Solar System and used innovative materials to show the different attributes of each.
Science students use hands-on, project-based learning in class. If students read it, write it, listen to it, speak it and create it, they will retain this new information in a deeper way.
