Some ENTH Class Projects:

  • 7-8 Science MathMythbusters | 10th Grade EnviroArt
    Everyday, we hear claims about many things – is it true that if you step on a crack you’ll break your mother’s back? When you flush the toilet, spray from the flushing travels across the room to where your toothbrush is stored? What about the claims you hear about different products?  Do paper towels really do what they say they can do? Is using hand sanitizer really better than not using hand sanitizer? Product testing is a form of mythbusting. Your team has been hired to bust myths: Your job: test a product claim. Your mini mythbusters experiment will communicate your results and you must show the following:

    ►Show how you used the principles of experimental design
    ►The lab safety procedures you followed (physical document of lab safety)
    ►A storyboard illustrating the procedures of your experiment
    ►Report whether you busted or confirmed the myth and support your conclusion with concrete evidence in a PowerPoint or Prezi presentation

  • Themes Around the World
    7th Grade ELA/Eastern Hemisphere

    Driving Question: As ENTH learners, how can we find themes in the world around us?

    Big Ideas: folk tales around the world, themes in literature, Eastern Hemisphere continents, 5 themes of geography, mapsCulminating Project: Students will work in groups to create Prezi presentations.  Each group will be responsible to teach their peers the content from their presentation.
  • The Art of Transformation | 9th/10th Geometry
    Driving Question: Can art transform our mathematical thinking?

    Big Idea: Students worked together to create a collaborative piece of art using all four geometric transformations. The piece of art created could be in any form from painting to sculpting to dance. In addition to creating their piece of art, students were required to create step by step instructions in order to recreate their piece of art research the history of their art form, and the impact their art form has had on society.

    Audience: Students art pieces will be showcased at the first Project Showcase night. A couple examples of final products are below.


    Decoding Geometry | 9th/10th Geometry

    Driving Question: How can we, as students of Geometry, use technology to help decode Geometric clues to follow a map?

    Big Ideas: Students will use Aurasma to create a scavenger hunt around the school where the solutions to the problem is the room number where you can find the next clue. When they get to the next room they must look for a geometric shape for where the next clue is hidden.

    Audience: The students will present to the class. During the November 4th Showcase night, students will be able to have the scavenger hunts solved by parents and community members attending
  • Severe Weather! | 8th Grade Engineering Earth/Math
    Driving Question: How can we study about severe weather events?
    Big Idea: How can we create a public service announcement (PSA) to help educate the community about various types of severe weather and its causes and effects. Culminating Project: Create a video using moviemaker software to create a PSA for severe weather.
  • Numberline & Mythbusters
    7th Grade Mathematical Science

    What would life be like if we lived on a number line? Students explore positive and negative integers using Absolute value, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication and Division.

    Mythbusters Driving Question: How can we as New Tech learners demonstrate our understanding of the scientific method using proper safety methods and mathematical principles to "confirm" or "bust" our own hypotheses? Students make their own Mythbusters episode to detail how they used the Scientific Method to create and test their own question.
