On Thursday, November 8th, 2012 Sixth-grade students at Foothills Elementary gathered in the auditorium for the annual Science Fair. It was a very successful event with all students displaying a project and explaining their experimentation and results to parents and other classes at Foothills. High School students from Salem Hills were invited to judge the Science Fair and choose participants for the District Science Fair. It was a very informative and fun event.
Just like the ancient Sumerians, sixth grade students in Mrs. Bushman's class learned to write on clay tablets using ancient symbols for words called cuneiform. Using clay and cuneiform letters to write messages was fun, but the students are very glad they don't have to do this every day!
