Thursday, November 1, 2007 N/Warren Town and County News Page Thirteen Day at Norwal The students in Christie Beving, Stephanie Tuinstra and Becky Koch's 6th grade classrooms at ~Norwalk Middle School 'have been working on writing newspaper ar- ticles. Writing a newspa- per is one of the requirett writing pieces in 6t" grade English. Students covered the important aspects of a newspaper and each stu- dent wrote five articles for their own newspaper. Possible options for ar- ticles included a sports fea- ture, news feature, birth announcement, weather forecast, movie revie,w, advice column, etc. The English depart- ment collaborated with Ashley Prieksat in com- puters and students were able to use their typing skills to publish a final newspaper with their ar- ticles. Northwest Missouri State student teacher, Kyle Seidl, spent time in Tuinstra's classroom teachin r the parts of a newspaper. Seidl will be with Lynda Downs in so- cial studies for the next- eight weeks. We have included a few of the students" news fea- ture articles on their expe- riences during Leisure Day, an annual 6th grade for M to ex outdoor activities such as canoeing, fishing, hiking, art, orienteering and the honey making process. Leisure Day was held Fri- day, Sept. 28. Leisure Day Adventures By Breanna Rexroat Friday, Sept. 28, the 6th graders of Norwalk Middle School went on a Leisure Day field trip. We went to the Annette Na- ture Center near [ndianola. We went canoe- ing and fishing. We learned about bee keeping. We did art activities and played a compass (orienteering) game. In between those activi- ties, we had a very good lunch. It was provided by the Warren County Cattle- men. The Leisure Day activi- ties lasted the entire school day. We have Leisure Day because it is an interdisci- plinary unit that is put together and taught by the 6t" grade teachers. It is a great day. Plus, my friend, Bret and I got to hang out. Leisure Day Fun[[[ By Caleb Klocko Friday, Sept. 28, the sixth graders from Norwalk Middle School went to the Annette na- ture Center in Indianola. We did a lot of different ac- tivities like, canoed, fished, made Frisbees, watched how to make honey and had lunch. For lunch, we had some big and juicy hamburgers with chips, pop, and a banana. We went to the Annette Nature Center because we are studying the Yukon and we needed to summa- rize what and how the Ca- nadians did everything. When we were canoeing the teachers told us that if we wanted to steer right we had to put the paddles on the left side of the ca- noe and the opposite with I, Dead'ine ad l legals and stories is Noon Friday! the left. When we made the Frisbees we glued two plates together and col- ored them fall colors, thedl" we wen t to see who could throw them the furthest. When we did the com- passes we had to line up the red arrow with the arrow in the back of the compasses and then you would find the direction. That was what we did at the Annette Nature Center and why we did those activities. Photos submitted.
