Admiral Huckelberry of the IKS Highlander continues to run epic missions with the students of J.E. Harrison Middle School, and as icing on the cake he’s put together some fantastic videos showing his students in action.
8th Grade Social Studies Students have completed a Dream Flight Adventure Mission at HMS! These students completed the Succession Mission as well as the Succession Mission Ops STEAM Classroom activities.
While participating in the Succession Mission, Social Studies students embarked on a journey to locate a missing Oracle, appoint a new king and restore peace to the planet Megara. They then had to work with four different view points of government to construct a “New Way” of governing for the Megara People.
While working in Mission Ops the students participated in a Two Sided Political Debate. Representing two of the fictional factions that vie for the throne, they discovered that the only way to deal with the political upheaval on Megara is to work to understand these differing views of governing.
The students then began to collaborate, create and compromise when constructing a “New Way” of governing for the Megara People. Students had to construct new forms of government and a process to select leaders to govern.
6th Grade Health Students have completed the a Dream Flight Adventure Mission at HMS. These students completed the Pandemic Mission as well as the Pandemic Mission Ops STEAM Classroom activities.
While working in Mission Ops the Carnegie Science Center supported our Curriculum with their Anatomy Adventure Science on the Road exhibits. These hands on activities directly connected the content covered in Health Class to the content learned in the Pandemic Mission.
While participating in the Pandemic Mission, Health students embarked on a journey to save a sick delegate and restore peace between two nations. They had to locate viruses in the sick delegates body systems and stop them from spreading.
