Aquinas Program – Sunflower STREAM Project

Joachim and Anne students displayed the St. Julie Billiart Sunflower STREAM Project at the Aquinas Exposition 2017. Van Gogh’s Sunflowers -five flowers in a vase has been the most visited painting in England. These flowers are bursting with meaning while representing the natural cycle of life with a supernatural glow.  His flowers along with St, Julie Billiart’s inspiration energized the students to use Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Art and Math into developing the many facets of the project. Mr. Corso, our Assistant Principal, was the Moderator. SsJA’s Proud Aquinas Members are: Angie Bermeo, Rousseau Francois, Chelsea Mullings, Jessica Casamajor, Lauren Hedge, Jared King, Jonathan Laura, Divia Myers, Ashley Predvil ,Shelsy Fils Aime and Melodie Cadichon. Congratulations to All!!!

Team Learning Using Digital Techniques

Class 5-1 explored the various digital programs to reinforce a Math lesson on Fractions. Students were able to learn how to download the Pinterest Application on their cell phone and utilize the program to view different math problems relating to a Fraction Lesson.

3. Individual organisms and species change over time.

4. The continuity of life is sustained through reproduction and development.

5. Organisms maintain a dynamic equilibrium that sustain life.

6. Plants and animals depend on each other and their physical enviornment. It is used for immediate growth and activity of the animal or it is stored. Some of the stored energy is released as heat energy when the organism dies and decays.

The Physical Setting

1. Many of the phenomena that we observe on Earth involve interactions among components of air, water and land.

2. Matter is made up of particles whose properties determine the observable characteristics of matter and its reactivity.

3. Energy exists in many forms and when those forms change energy is conserved.

4. Energy and matter interact through forces that result in changes in motion.
