  • 6th Grade Turtle Dissection Day

    Environmental educators/teachers from Nature’s Classroom Institute in Mukwonago came to Whitewater Middle School on the morning of Friday, February 16th to dissect turtles with selected 6th grade students as a classroom extension project. Students were able to see firsthand what the turtles had recently eaten and how their bodies are specially adapted for optimum survival in their environment.  It was especially exciting to study the eye and to also uncover the brain.  Pictured with middle school students are Nature’s Classroom teachers, Briana Kyle and Satira Lord.

  • 6th Graders Tour Egypt with VR

    VR photo

    After learning all about ancient Egypt in social studies, the 6th graders went on a virtual field trip to Egypt. Mr. Houwers, WWUSD Technology Integrator, brought in virtual reality goggles for each student to explore Egypt. He guided the students on a tour allowing the students to see temples, monuments, and statues of Queen Hatshepsut and King Khufu up close. They also saw the pyramids. They were in awe of the architecture and how amazing it was that these ancient Egyptians were able to build these massive monuments without any of today’s technology. There was even some monuments that still had the original paint-beautiful! Many like the fact that it felt like they were really there. They can’t hardly wait until he comes back for the next virtual field trip to Greece!
