Battle of the Books

Advisor: Mrs. Coopman, ext. 28504

Battle of the Books is a trivia contest related to 15 assigned chapter books. Students in grades 4-6 form a team of 3 or 4 players and read the specific books and hopefully pay close attention to detail! Students compete against other teams in their grade level for the first place title. Students must answer questions with both the title and author of the correct book. The winning 6th grade team will compete against schools in the state using a set of online questions. For the book list, please see the website for WEMTA and reference the Elementary Division: http://www.wemta.org/programs/battle_booklists.cfm

Crane Foundation Art Exchange Project

Advisor: Mrs. Falk, ext. 28156        

Rolling Hills Sixth Graders are participating in an “Art Exchange” with students from Cuba as well as classroom study in science and language arts focusing on cranes/environmental sensitivity. Korie Klink, a crane specialist as well as a graduate student at UW-Stevens Point, obtained grants to support this project. What began as a field trip to explore the world of the cranes blossomed into an international exchange of artwork, friendship, crane conservation, and peace!

Under the direction of our art teacher, Mrs. Klug, and the sixth grade teachers, Pat Falk, Terri Herrera, and Jan Atkinson; the sixth graders are creating magnificent crane artwork. The art will be combined with 1,000 paper origami cranes to accompany Korie Klink to Cuba in February 2011 on a goodwill/educational expedition to support the habitats of the Cuban sandhill cranes as well as to foster connections between students of the two countries.  In addition to the creation of the artwork, students are developing several written projects including “Thousand Cranes” books and acrostic poetry.
