Students at Champion's new middle school have been busy utilizing their new space. Besides utilizing the bright new classrooms, students are also encouraged to collaborate in the specially designed common areas. 5th grade Science students have been learning about how scientists use components of the metric system to measure the volume of water, shoreline distances, and mass of fish commercially caught in the great lakes. In the photographs students are shown creating scale models of the 5 great lakes. The blue squares represent the volume of water found in each great lake. Did you know that Lake Erie has only 2 percent of the total volume of water found in the Great Lakes, but contains 49 percent of the commercial fish caught? After classroom discussions, students found out that Lake Erie's shallow water creates the best habitat for the fish we all love to eat!
