Todd Green Performs At NJHS

Thursday, October 12th, 2017

The Norfolk Arts Center provided the Junior High with some instrumental entertainment on October 11th.  Todd Green came and wowed all of us with his amazing instruments. We learned a lot about the instruments from different countries. They not only look different, they sound different, and most times you hold them differently to play them. Thank you Norfolk Arts Center for bringing Todd Green to the Junior High!

Mrs. Gentrup’s High Ability Learners (HAL) class spent a unit learning how to individually control LEDs in an e-textile circuit while building an interactive plush creature.

They used the LilyPad series in the circuit to turn different LEDs on and off. Using the E-Sewing to connect circuits, they examined how buttons and switches behave differently to build & create a plush creature with light-up features.  The students then designed each monster with a personality.  They created a super hero, Pennywise the Clown, Donald Trump, cartoon character, lettuce,  a football player and lots more.

Junior High 21st Century Living

Friday, September 22nd, 2017

In 21st Century Living, Mrs. Miller’s students were senior citizens. They had to go to different stations to feel like a senior citizen. At one station, students had to read an article with glasses that have a thin layer of Vaseline on the lenses so it was hard for them to read. At another station, they ate unsalted crackers and watered lemonade.  They could not chew the food, and it didn’t have a lot of flavor.
