It's Beginning to be Digested

One of the 7th grade science teachers (Mrs. Arcaya) and I are embarking on a project with her classes. They are about to start a unit on the digestive system.  We brainstormed what would be best to do with Minecraft for a limited number of class periods, and we finally decided to let small groups build their own.  They are reflecting this weekend and coming up with ideas on how to model it.  Then at lunch, some kids came in from a morning class ready to start on the project that doesn't start until the end of March.  I have a feeling the lab is going to be busy during advisory, lunch, and anytime else they can squeeze in. It almost brings tears to my eyes when students are this excited about doing school work.  I'll keep you informed.
