Blue Valley Middle School Scholars Bowl team had a great season! The season ended April 6 at the Riley County meet. Five Riley county teams participated (Anthony MS, Eisenhower MS, Luckey, Blue Valley, and Riley County). Both the JV and Varsity teams competed well and came away with 4th place. BVMS competed in a total of five tournaments this year. At the league meet in Marysville, the Varsity team earned 4th place out of ten teams while the JV team earned 7th place (tied for 5th but came out in 7th in head-to-head competition). These students should be commended for their efforts!!
The 8th grade class has been studying how our government formed in social studies. They have enjoyed a role playing exercise where they each are required to represent a state at the Constitutional Convention. As representatives, they were to argue for or against resolutions that would have amended the Articles of Confederation. They did a great job representing their state and forming their arguments!
College Biology has been learning about the different types of tissue found in the human body (epithelial, connective, nerve, and muscle). They are using their knowledge to construct a model of the skin. Last week they made the epidermis which is mostly stratified squamous epithelium.
