“The objects in our system are a help to the child himself, he chooses what he wants for his own use, and works with it according to his own needs, tendencies and special interests. In this way, the objects become a means of growth.”—Mari Montessori
Last week, the 8th grade students of Gateway Academy were able to have a “Shakesperience”. Students were able to go on a backstage tour of the theatre and watch “12th Night”. Students had been studying the play in class and loved seeing the play come to life. Thank you to the Utah Shakespeare Festival for allowing our students to have this opportunity.
The 4th graders have been learning about weather in science. Students have been able to make a weather vane and an anemometer. Students have been enthusiastic about making weather instruments and have been excited for science class.
