Grade 8 students were given a S.T.E.A.M. ( science, technology, engineering, art, math) challenge to create the perfect snowflake. The students completed a series of thermo-dynamic labs demonstrating the effects of different variables on the formation of ice crystals and how the typical six-sided shape of a snowflake forms. A variety of digital tools ( Processing Code, Snowflake Generator, and TinkerCad 3-D) were used in order to create their mathematically correct snowflake model.
Courage 2 Care

In addition, Ms. Spiro also taught classroom guidance lessons to students in grades 4-6 at Sandwich Central School. All students participated in lessons from a curriculum entitled Courage 2 Care. Courage 2 Care is an evidence based curriculum that strives to instill ideals such as empathy, compassion, and kindness in middle school students.
