HCMS Science Students Hold "Super Soap Density Lab"
Halifax County Middle School students in Mrs. Kelli Douglas' 7th grade science class formed hypotheses and carried out an investigation in order to answer the question "Does soap float?" Students calculated the volume, mass, and density of two brands of soap to predict whether the soap would float or sink. Each bar of soap was dropped into a container of water to see if their predictions were correct. Finally, each bar of soap was microwaved and submerged into water to determine buoyancy.

HCMS Teachers Raise RIGOR in Instruction
HCMS teachers worked together to discuss the need and importance of rigor in developing questions needed to achieve well defined goals. Teachers used rigor in creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels. Having high expectations starts with the decision that every student possesses the potential to be his or her best, no matter what. As teachers worked together, they reviewed lessons that incorporated rigorous opportunities for learning. Higher-level questioning is an integral part of a rigorous classroom in addition to open-ended questions that are at the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy.
