|A tradition: taking a group shot of the 5/6s at the Cube|
On Thursday, the entire 5/6 took a trip to the University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) to view some exhibits that related to their developing portrait work. Monica has written a bit about it on her blog, which can be found here. (Check it weekly! She updates every Friday!)
(In her entry discussing this field trip, she mentions that photography was forbidden, which meant that she couldn't get any photos of the kids working. I was unaware of the no photography rule at first, so I inadvertently violated that policy. If you keep it quiet, I'll show you a few of the photos that I got before a security guard politely asked me to put away my camera. SHHHH.... IT'S OUR SECRET.)

Whew! We have successfully completed our once-every-two-years trip to the Howell Nature Center Global Village! There will soon come a day when I will write up a proper post about our experiences, but it is not today, as I am ready for a good, long nap. To tide you over, please check out the page for our class Twitter feed. There, you will find a chronicle of our adventures (tweeted in reverse chronological order).

As you may know, Lisa Johnson (famous and beloved for bringing Fish Lab to Summers-Knoll) has joined our faculty as a science teacher. We'll be co-teaching science this year, and we ran a fantastic activity on class on Monday. I'll tell you all about it, just as soon as Bora finishes this phone call.
