Life of our CORE Placer Families


Check out what are CORE Placer Families are doing during their days!

This month a couple of CORE students in Folsom studied texture and emotion through art.  Here students have used their own creativity to recreate the styles of Jackson Pollock and Vincent Van Gogh.

Our Students at the Colfax Resource Center were doing Acid/Base Experiments in Biology!

Our Students at the Colfax Resource Center were stepping on eggs!

It’s a very eggciting eggsperiment.

The purpose is to introduce the scientific method in a fun way. It’s not attached to any messages on engineering or biology,  just method.

The question: Will an egg in its carton break if it is stepped on gently?

Background: we discuss what we already know about eggs and their structure.

Hypothesis: students make an educated guess.

Results: Students write their observations and attempt to answer WHY the eggs didn’t break. Other factors. Maybe they were boiled (no). Maybe Leah isn’t heavy enough (no, because Mrs Mitchell didn’t break them either). Maybe the carton protects them  (yes,  upright eggs break less often than eggs lying down).

What next? Here’s the critical thinking portion… they must think of how their learned knowledge is useful.

Our Family Fun Night with CORE at Roller King was a hit! We were able to get to know each other better, meet new/current families, and skated the night away!

Our students in the South Lake Tahoe area took a trip together to the Tahoe Enviromental Research Center in Incline Village. It lasted 4 hours with students from UC Davis doing the lessons. They learned how to do stream monitoring, watershed, how Tahoe was formed, and watched a 3D Movie! What a wonderful experience for our students!
