‘Periodically’ Speaking

Combining science education with student creativity, sixth-grade students in Monica Zenyuh’s science classes at Oldfield Middle School celebrated the Periodic Table of Elements.

As an opportunity to enhance student learning, Ms. Zenyuh encouraged her students to join in the celebration, which reinforced their scientific elements unit in a fun and interactive way.  Students, faculty and staff participated in the day by creating t-shirts depicting elements on the periodic table or elements to spell words and make phrases.   

Along with their celebration, students had the opportunity to participate in the “Holiday Fa-Fa-La” classroom decorating party during recess.
