I Solve problems, getclues, escape! Mrs. Web's dass par- ticipated in a Halloween Escape Room hosted by a parent, Lori Oakes. The escape room required the students to solve numeri- cal puzzles to progress to different levels in the ganle. Each group had three levels they had to unlock in order to be able to fish around in the bowl ofgoo to find a key to unlock the case. After each group completed their tasks, all the groups need to work together to discover the master code to unlock the case. Once the case was unlocked, the students were surprised with a deli- cious snack. The Fabulous Frogs would like to give a huge THANK YOU to Mrs. Oakes for creating and implementing such a fun and interactive activity for our class! II STIJENT TH i EEI( for the Monroe County School System # StateFarm The third graders from T G Scott visited the Vulcan Rock Quarry again this year. What an amazing experience for students to see the mining of granite and rocks and minerals up dose.The day began with a lesson and moved to the buses where the adventure began. Like the Magic School Bus, students go down into the quarry, seeing machines in action, as they mine the granite. Students observed various rocks, rock formations, and animal habitats. They saw mountains of sand with weathering and ended up on a na- ture trail walk created for students by Vulcan. A big "Thank you" to Vulcan for a great experience. You Rock!
