Students at West Babylon Senior High School are learning about U.S. history during their junior year and U.S. government during their senior year. During a recent U.S. history lesson, students watched a video clip and answered questions about President John Adams. In a related lesson, students created cereal boxes depicting different presidents. The boxes featured a famous quote from the president, random facts, previous jobs prior to becoming president and significant events in their event.

During the U.S. government class, seniors are learning all about the practice of gerrymandering. After watching a brief video, students went to the computer lab for a head-to-head competition. Using a gerrymandering video game, the students competed to see who could be the most successful in restructuring their districts.

The students at Forest Avenue Elementary School are going the distance this year, thanks to the newly launched Mileage Club. The club began in October and Forest Avenue students have already walked more than 2,000 miles as a school. An outdoor space is sectioned off and classes walk the track twice – for the equivalent of one mile – at an allotted timeslot each day. Students get a stick for every mile completed and receive a token for every five miles. The walks help to increase physical activity while also giving students a break in the day. The school plans to continue the club in the winter months and move the walks indoors.

After reading “Turkey Trouble” with their class, the students in Ms. Rosen’s class at John F. Kennedy Elementary School did their best to disguise their turkeys so they wouldn’t end up on the dinner table this Thanksgiving. The students camouflaged their turkeys in some creative costumes and wrote stories on why they choose that particular disguise.
