Students at the Leroy L. Wood Elementary School continue to wonder about the world around them. Then they are taking those wonderings to learn about the things that made them wonder. It is an “inquiry based approach to learning,” that gets students engaged and excited about learning, according to principal Amy Hartley-Matteson.
The Neighb News will highlight some of those projects on an ongoing basis throughout the year.
This week we learn from Danika Reynolds on how electricity is delivered to our homes; Carlie Francis what would happen if we had no moon; Taylor Pacheco and Harper Mitchell how reindeer fly.
How do we get electricity at home?
The spinning turbines make the electricity and flow into power lines then to our houses. Electricity moves through the wires fast. The electric current is a flow or movement of electrical charge through copper wires.
What would happen if there was no moon?
Of course one of the moon’s most noticeable effects is (or was) the tides. With the moon no longer there, the oceans of the world become much calmer. The sun still has an effect on them (known as solar tides), so surfers wouldn’t be completely devoid of waves. But the oceans would largely become serene.

How do reindeers fly?
Long ago Santa Claus and the elves discovered a special formula of magical reindeer food which makes reindeer fly. The reindeer eat this food all year long. It gives them enough magic to fly around the world. The magic mushrooms and special reindeer luncheon are found only where Santa lives.
