The Children’s Guild Baltimore Campus held its 2nd Annual Black History Month Celebration on Wednesday, February 21st at 10:30am to talk with the students about African-American heritage through the past, present, and future. The celebration gave the students a chance to learn accurate information about African-Americans’ contribution to United States history.
Those in attendance were special guest, the Keur Khaleyi African Dance Company, Principal, LaRon Martin, Assistant Principal, Devon Douglass, and the Baltimore campus school community.
The eighth-grade students in Ms. Chambers’ Science class at Monarch Academy Baltimore Public Charter School presented their science projects to the administrative staff and board members at the Monarch Academy Baltimore board meeting on Thursday, February 8th.
The science students began work at the beginning of the school year and learned about lab norms and the scientific method by using gummy bears to discover Osmosis and determine why it had occurred. In this experiment, the students placed gummy bears in four different beakers that contained water, vinegar, baking soda, and salt water for 24 hours. After the 24 hours, the students investigated what happened to each gummy bear in the solution and learned about why changes had occurred.
Next, the students learned about all of the organelles in plant and animal cells. In this part of the lab work, the students looked at an Elodea plant cell and an onion cell and investigated it in the lab to identify the different cell parts. For the eighth graders, the most fun part of the lab work was when their cheek cells were swabbed. View bulletin board photo above of the 8th-grade students’ Wanted posters.
After the lab work concluded, each student was required, outside of school, to conduct their own research and create a 3D Cell Model Project that displayed the types of organelles (animal vs. plant cell) that were covered in class. The students were also required to write their personal reflections based on their research.
