Home Schools Jr. Sr. High School Students Break Out and Learn About Earth Day

Students Break Out and Learn About Earth Day

Fairbury High School juniors in Mrs. Julie Petersen’s standards math class shouted expressions of success on Wednesday, April 25th, as they worked together to solve math questions and unlock their team box.  Working with data involving Earth Day and recycling, students completed research, answered numerous questions and opened four locks.  After opening the directional lock,  Mrs. Karen Dux told Olivia, Jade and Paige that “Collaboration is one of the most important skills of the 21st century.”  When you think out loud, the ideas start to flow and connect, directing you to success.

Teammates encouraged one another saying “You got it girl!  See how we need you?!”
Inspired by Earth Day that began April 22, 1970, this week students are answering the Project Based Learning question “How can one teenager make a difference in our local, national and global environment?”  One person can influence all of the data!
