A Great Trip to Medieval Times

On Friday, March 15, FSA 6th, 7th, and 8th graders had a  trip to Medieval Times. History was an experience within the walls of their 11th century-style castle.  During the Medieval Times Educational Matinee, our students stepped back into the Middle Ages as they witnessed medieval games of skill, spectacular horsemanship and even an authentic jousting tournament.  As the knights battled, the serfs and wenches served a King’s feast that was eaten Medieval-style: sans silverware!

Students were enthralled with the spectacular show and raved about the delicious lunch they enjoyed with their classmates and teachers. This trip became one of the most memorable activity of this year for everyone. Please see pictures here:

CONCH "SHELL TRUMPET"

Fulton Science Academy Private School


In honor of their study of mollusks, on Thursday, March 14th Mrs. Butler announced her 7th grade Life Science classes by using a conch “shell trumpet”.   Conch “shell trumpets” were historically used as part of religious practices and for ceremonial purposes. A conch is the shell of a very large sea snail called a mollusk. These “shell trumpets” can produce a very loud sound!

Maybe you think that snails, clams, mussels, squid, and octopods are very different. 7th grade Life Science students have been studying these organisms and know they are all invertebrates and belong to one of the 3 main groups of mollusks: Gastropods, Bivalves, and Cephalopods.
