Gaming in Social Studies
Eighth-grade students in Mr. Tagg’s American history classes were given the challenge of creating a board game to help review the concepts learned during their study of the American Revolution. First, students interviewed with company CEO’s for positions in the companies developing the game boards. Students then worked in teams to design a board game theme and come up with a concept to incorporate their theme throughout the game. Teams then created the board, game pieces, and game cards, researched and wrote the game instructions for others to follow, and added creative touches to their products. Finally, students played other group's games as a review of all the material learned in the unit.

Students Design Dragsters
Eighth-grade students in Mr. Miller’s Industrial Technology classes put their skills to work designing CO2 dragsters. Students have been learning and using the CAD (Computer Assisted Drafting) program, Autosketch. Classes learned that manufactured items start with a drawing or print giving specific information about the parts.   They created multiview drawings where the same part is drawn with three different views and precision measurements are noted. They then created isometric drawings where the object is drawn in only one view but gives a three dimensional look. The final project culminates with the students using their skills and knowledge of the scientific concepts of mass, inertia, friction, and aerodynamics to create their personal designs for their dragsters. Once completed, their drawings are used as templates to lay out their basal wood blanks. They went to the woodshop to bring them to life using bandsaws, drill presses and sanders. The final part of their hard work was putting their designs and workmanship to the test by competing on a track designed to race. They will use the skills from Mr. White’s science class to calculate their elapsed time and distance into a miles-per-hour rating.
