7th grade Social Studies students have been studying inventions from Ancient China like fireworks, the compass, the seismograph, silk cloth, The Great Wall, The Terracotta Army, acupuncture, the iron plow, the parachute, and the kite! After researching an invention they wrote a paragraph explaining the similarities and differences of how the invention was used in Ancient China compared to today. When their research was finished they designed a "China" plate that showcased their invention in the style of blue and white pottery made in Ancient China.

Nebraska Extension – Platte County led the 4-H School Enrichment program called Leadership Summit for all CMS 5th graders on Thursday, November 8th at CMS. The Leadership Summit was a hiking theme leadership experience where students spent all day learning about themselves and how to work with others. The morning featured the opportunity to learn about their own personality and how they naturally operate as a leader as well as learning how to recognize, accept and value differences among their peers. After lunch, students rotated through sessions called Scenic Lookout (how to be an effective listener), Teamwork Tightrope (teamwork through communication), Tower Building (teamwork through working together) and Cards of Value (learning how to treat everyone respectfully). The day was a great opportunity for students to learn actively about how to be a great leader.

7th grade Social Studies finished their ancient Egypt unit with their Shark Tank projects. They presented "new" inventions from ancient Egypt to convince our Shark Tank Judges to invest in their company. Some of those new inventions include pyramids, embalming, bandages, papyrus, wigs, ink, and toothpaste. It was a great culminating project that tied in economics as well.
