Looking back on the last two weeks, you can see how flexibility, adaptability, and versatility are skills that the students work on at My City School. We said good-bye to our temporary classroom and moved in gusto to our new room. We started our drama class at the New Conservatory Theater with flair. CandyLand was adopted to MetricLand as we kicked off our science curriculum starting with metric measurements which tied into our math focus. We wrapped up our Home is Where the Heart Is Tours in Mill Valley where we experienced the government shutdown firsthand when trying to visit Muir Woods. In History, we began our investigation of the Gold Rush from the point of view of Chinese Immigration. Our new high school intern Elena joined us. The kids cleaned up nicely from the sweaty Hardly Strictly Bluegrass Festival to the refined Midweeklies. We wrapped it all up with SPAN and LOAD with a hands-on study of bridges: arch, beam, and suspension.
