My Students

Students in our school have a love of learning to do and want to document the journey of discovery through note-booking, photographs, and discussions. What makes our students different is the teaming and the school attitude. Our students work together to support each other and the school.

"The Bighorn Attitude is a compelling state of mind." At out school we have school pride that drives academics, friendships, and responsibility.

Students are grouped in teams to build relationships with faculty, staff, and other students.

My Project

The use of notebooks is a daily strategy in our classroom, especially in science. Using the notebooks in science, students can accurately record their observations. Using colored pencils help scientists to remember their active investigations and justify their reasoning. Regular pencils cannot show the detail and markers leek onto the next page.

Students need to be able to use and compare a variety of tools.

By having digital thermometers we will be able to be more accurate with our data and get practice using different tools. The waterproof thermometers will help us to discover density and ocean currents giving us a precise temperature in the hundredths.
