Seventh-graders at Nesaquake Middle School learned firsthand about animal rescue and what they can do in their own communities when Stephen Edghill from Animal Planet’s show Guardians of Rescue visited the school on May 1.
The Guardians of Rescue organization works on Long Island and surrounding areas to help animals that may be neglected or abused. Edghill spoke to the students about how they can educate people on caring for their pets and how they can get the word out in their communities.
Nesaquake Middle School students work on the Genius Hour, which allows them one hour per week during school to explore their passions and encourages creativity. Students in Marissa LoSardo’s seventh-grade English class are currently working on an empathy project and many students chose animal shelters to support. After a question and answer session following Edghill’s presentation, the students felt empowered to spark a conversation and help make a change.
Math students at Nesaquake Middle School put their academic skills to the test when they participated in a math-themed breakout challenge on April 7.
Themed after “Night at the Museum,” students were charged with escaping the Nesaquake library before the T-Rex came to life. Students in Tina Bosi’s Math 8 and algebra classes divided into four different teams to complete the challenge. The teams had to unlock six different locks featuring puzzles designed by Ms. Bosi.
The math students used their knowledge of graph functions, points of intersection, multiples and negative exponents in an attempt to unlock each puzzle. Clues were hidden throughout the library and each team was given two hint cards throughout the timed challenge.
