Today in class we learned a little more about how water 
moves from a water tower to the taps in our homes. 
The students then had a turn to create their own water

abundance of materials to choose 
from to create something to complete it.

Holly's Favorite Color

posted Feb 9, 2018, 6:48 AM by lgelinne@chccs.k12.nc.us

When Holly visits, we want to know all about her, including her favorite color! 

Mr. Ed has no idea what it was so we decided to do a little research and try out

 own experiment. Many people often say dogs are colorblind, however our research

 told us that they are not. They see more than just black, white, and gray. However,

 the color range they perceive is limited compared to the spectrum we see. The 

canine color field consists mostly of yellows, blues, and violets. We decided to put

out a few different colored pieces of paper with Holly’s favorite Turkey Jerky treats. 

Holly walked across the room, stopped to check it out and went to the blue piece of

 paper BOTH times we tried it! We think Holly’s favorite color is blue! Stay tuned for 

our third trial in a few weeks!

Check out pictures from our second trial of our experiment!  

Entrepreneurs Rock!

A group of amazing local entrepreneurs visited UNC 
Hospital School yesterday. They each shared their 
impressive professional journeys and how collaboration
 is a key to their success. The students LOVED the 
workshop and asked tons of insightful questions.

Water Pipelines

posted Oct 11, 2017, 8:21 AM by lgelinne@chccs.k12.nc.us

Teachers explore a new Makerspace activity during 
an afternoon Professional Development session.
We were given a cup, bowl, tape, straws, and popsicle 
sticks and instructed to use the materials to move water
 from the bowl to the cup without touching either. 
Ms Richmond and Ms. Resaul transported the 
greatest amount of water but all were successful in 
one way or another. Most importantly, we all learned
something new AND had FUN!
