Indian Lake Middle School 5th-graders are getting a glimpse of how real scientists make discoveries. Science teachers Jana McPherson and Brian Tidwell started off the year by asking students to examine nearby pond water using scientific tools such as microscopes, triple beam balances, graduated cylinders and more. Students are also learning about different kinds of scientists like biologists, botanists, geologists, meteorologists and others.

Frieda, who returned from a trip out west, handed out cowboy-themed prizes for the students who completed their summer reading logs, including bandanas, candy bars, hats and extra recess. The second grades turned in the most completed reading logs and also earned an ice cream treat. In total, more than 150 students read 30 or more books over break. (PHOTO | INDIAN LAKE SCHOOLS)
