Ask most any sixth grader at Adams Middle School and they'll tell you: earthquakes.
Because through one teacher's innovative way of teaching the required sixth-grade math and science curriculum to his students, they've spent the last couple of months focusing on ways to prevent the earth, or let's just say areas of it, from a rockin' and a rollin'.
Through a unique yet fun combination of hands-on math and science, teacher Frank Zrinski believes that students will not only understand each subject better; they'll also retain what they've learned longer. Zrinski said that he "sees learning as planning, constructing and reflecting."
During the third quarter of the school year, Zrinski said that sixth graders typically focus on learning about earthquakes in science and dive into the study of geometry and pre-algebra concepts in math.
