It was a fun Friday for LISD School and Community Relations staff as they paired up at Canyon Ridge Middle School for to do a little show and tell. The Eagles were a-flutter with activity, showcasing programs and learning techniques. Here’s a glimpse of what we captured:

Gateway Program

During a lesson on Robotics, Gateway students built pull toys using a chain drive. The team of girls working on this project used different sized gears to make the dancers move at different speeds.

Eagle News

Students with a passion for communication spend 30 minutes of their morning producing announcements delivered daily via webcast to the campus.

Baker’s Corner

What can you do with overripe bananas? This wasn’t just a cooking lesson, these students also learned the value of repurposing food.

Gallery Walk

Three 8th grade classes participated in a gallery walk to prepare for next week’s unite test. Students dropped by several different stations to apply their knowledge of US History. At one of the stations, students wrote on Andrew Jackson’s headstone his successes and challenges. One girl mentioned this was a much more creative way to show how much they know.

Walrus & The Carpenter

London Kawalek dropped a mad rhyme, rapping the “Walrus and the Carpenter” for their spring show Alice vs. Wonderland.
