Ductape Hacks by Catie and Gabby
Duct Tape Headbands
C: Do you want to design accessories for yourself or for friends?
G: If so you can make a duct tape headband!
C: You can show your style by using any type of tape color or style you want.
G: All you need is duct tape and any cutting tool!
C: And a creative mind to think of awesome ideas.
C and G:To Make the Basic Shape of the headband:
Measure a piece of duct tape that will comfortably fit around your head (make sure that the sticky side does not touch your head).
Fold the width of the tape half way over like a hotdog (make sure that half of the tape is not covered, also tape side up).
Then wrap it around your head and make sure that it fits (if it doesn’t fit, take a little piece of tape and tape it to the headband that you have already made, then wrap it the tape like step 2).
Take a piece of tape that is not too big and use it to tape the two ends together.
To make a bow: fold a piece of duct tape so that the edges meet in the middle and wrap a shorter piece of duct tape around the middle.
To make a basic button: take a little bit tape and cut it into a square, then attach a piece of tape on the sticky side and fold it over the square.
If you don’t want to use these ideas, use your imagination!

The Memory of Rachel
Rachel was a very social and cuddly guinea pig. She was an adorable and friendly pet which helped many of our students be more social around the guinea pigs. She made many Earhart students appreciate being in science.
We will remember all of the things Rachel the guinea pig did for all of the school, and we will remember her for the rest of our lives.

Amelia Earhart New Makerbot 3D printer
Amelia Earhart Elementary School has just bought a 3D printer. We are very excited to be able to create new, educational, learning tools. We have already started printing some amazing things.
The school has been printing everything from bracelets to dragons. Ms. Spencer and Mr.
O’neil have been printing and teaching us about this new piece of technology equipment. Ms. Spencer has been letting us create items to print.
A 3D printer is a good way for students to get interactive in learning. You can 3D print objects such as the pyramid of Giza. Which the students can then learn about. 3D printing is new age tech and is fun for everyone.
The school’s 3D printer has printed very cool objects like a dragon, a phone holder, a bracelet, a burger, and even a shark. If you do have a 3D printer, and it is a makerbot, you can go to Thingiverse - Digital Designs for Physical Objects or MakerBot: 3D Printing Resources and Tools for more info.

The Study of Earth Science
By Ellie Rotblat
What are rocks? That is a question. Well rocks are pieces of the earth’s continental plates, but they have broken off of them.
Rocks can be classified in many ways like in size. The order in size is boulder, cobble, pebble, gravel, sand, silt and clay. If you want to classify the rocks by what group they are in here are the groups. The groups are igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic.
If you want to know what igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic are you will find out here. Igneous rocks are formed from a volcano eruption. Magma is inside the volcano and then it spills out and turns in lava. The lava hardens and that’s how igneous is formed. Sedimentary rock is formed when two rocks mold together. Metamorphic rocks are formed when the pressure of the earth presses against heat.
This time I’m talking about rocks and minerals. Some rocks are made out of other rocks, like granite. Pink granite is made out of four different rocks for example.
You can make things with rocks too. The street is made out of rocks. This street is made out of asphalt. You can make buildings with rocks too.
Science Volunteer Interview By Ellie Rotblat
- Tell us about yourself and the classes you volunteer at Earhart?
I have a daughter in third grade at Earhart and the class I volunteer in is science lab.
- What made you want to help in science lab?
I was curious to see what my daughter was doing in the science lab.
- What’s been your best volunteer experience this school year?
Every time I help in science lab, I get to see at least one child have an “aha!” moment.
- I hear you do behind the scenes work in the science lab, what do you do?
I sharpen pencils, make photocopies and help set up the materials for the lab.
- What’s your favorite behind the scenes job?
My favorite behind the scenes job is solving problems because I like to be creative.
- What’s your least favorite behind the scenes job?
I don’t have one.
- Why should parents volunteer at school?
I get to see what my child is learning and I get to meet more people in my community.
- What’s your advice to science lab helpers?
Just follow Mrs. Nettles’ lead in the classroom.
