8th Grade Science
Eighth Grade in November- We are currently working on mastering the standard 8.MS-ESS1-2 This standard involves explaining the role of gravity in ocean tides, the orbital motions of planets, their moons, and asteroids in the solar system. The students were trying to find the answer to the question:How does gravity affect the objects in the solar system?
Students created a “gravity well” using material and various spherical objects to test out what happens.
7th Grade Science
Mr Sautter’s 7th grade science class search for macroinvertebrates in Lake Ellis to study how matter and energy are transferred among living and nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
Mr. Anderson’s students learn programming while creating with Lego Robotics.
English Language Learners Educate Peers on Global Climate Change, and Participate in Other Activities
English language learners at ARMS have been actively involved in their community lately. Spurred to action by the international youth climate marches, they have researched causes and effects of global climate change and held several teach-ins on their findings for their peers. Also, they assisted at the Royalston Historical Society candle light cemetery tours by enacting the historical life stories of some of the 18th and 19th century residents interred in the Old Center. In addition, some students have been helping after school with creating the new mural on Main Street Athol. Learning is more powerful when it is connected to real life applications.

Mr Sautter’s 7th Grade Science Classes
“Students study “tree cookies” or cross sections of trees to study dendrochronology and dendroclimatology.
Studying the growth rings of trees can provide evidence of resource availability and historical climate.”
