We’ve had a busy two weeks here at the Middle School! Last week, we visited Temple Beth El, where students go to hold a Torah scroll, learned about Jewish traditions, and saw how Temple Beth El celebrates Sukkot. Yesterday, we took a trip up to the Tacoma Buddhist Temple, where students learned about the basic tenants of the Buddhist faith. We also got a meditation demonstration!
Students have been working on a Science project related to our Ancient Astronomy unit. Students have chosen an ancient Astronomy experiment to research and try out. All the projects involve observing the sky, so we’re crossing all our fingers for some starry nights! We’ll also be continuing our study of religious calendars in Science, since calendars are a nice intersection of ancient Astronomy and religion.
