Subject: 
Science

Enter my room with an Observant Mind...

I believe in getting kids outside to learn about Science! We live an an amazing state with beautiful scenery and sunny weather so why not be outside as much as possible? :) 

Rocky Mountain has a year-end Science field trip to Eldorado Canyon State Park (south of Boulder). This will be the 16th year I have taken kids hiking here to learn about Ecosystems, biotic/ abiotic factors, energy flow through food chains and food webs. 

Your teacher made the news!  Check out this news clip that aired on FOX 31 March 2018 about my Harry Potter Genetics unit!

This spring the Rocky Mountain Core is teaming up with Colorado Core to care for, plant, prep for winter, and  maintence and upkeep on Century's 2 flower beds (one to the north of the building and the other at the main enterance). This is part of our "Service and Action" project for MYP and it is called- Operation: FLOWER POWER. While caring for the flowers and the beds, we also take our "Variables" lesson and our "Plant Unit" outside to study up close: different types of plant growth rates, the parts of flowers, and independent variables that affect our flower beds and the dependent variables that are the result of those changes.
