  • 7th Grade Diversity Day

    Diversity Day photos
    Whitewater Middle School extends a BIG THANK-YOU to the UW-Whitewater staff and student groups that played a significant part in this year’s annual Diversity Day that was held for all 7th graders on Wednesday, February 14. This special day of activities was planned as part of a Social Studies Unit that all 7th graders have been studying.

    It was a great learning day for students and the help and cooperation of UW-Whitewater staff and students were very much appreciated by all. Students learned that we all need to make more of an effort to understand each other, get along with each other, and accept each other.

  • 6th Grade Science Class Explore Population Change

    6th grade science class picture

    Students in 6th grade science classes have been working to answer the question “What can cause populations to change?” To help them answer this question, students explored the predator/prey relationship between the invasive sea lamprey and the trout population found in the Great Lakes region. Students spent time learning about the lamprey and the trout, examined historical population trends, and made predictions about the decline in the native fish populations. To conclude our case study, students dissected a sea lamprey and a perch. Students were looking for clues to support their claim that sea lampreys are a major predator in our Great Lakes. Students were definitely surprised to see egg filled sea lampreys and the long intestines of a perch. Be sure to ask your 6th grade about their dissection!
