All About MIchigan

Sault Sainte Marie is the oldest city in Michigan, and among the oldest cities in the United States. Over the course of history, the flags of several sovereign nations have flown over the Sault. Over 2,000 years ago, Native Americans began to gather here for the wealth of fish and fur found along the rushing waters of the wide, turbulent river that linked the Great Lakes of Superior and Huron. Spring and fall were important seasons for these original settlers, and they called the area “Bahweting,” or “The Gathering Place.” The area’s first full-time residents lived in lodges framed of wood poles, sheathed with bark or animal hides. The river below the rapids provided an abundance of fish

STEM in Sports!

Basketball Geometry Swish! The lovely sound of a basketball slipping through the net in the hoop, so perfectly centered that the ball doesn't touch the back stop or the rim! When this happens, a silent swish through the net is the only sound you hear. And, the ball safely sinks through to score. If the ball hits the rim of the hoop, the chance of it bouncing out increases. But to sink the basketball through the hoop, swish or not, a player doesn't throw the ball at the hoop. Rather a player uses knowledge of the parabolic arc to throw the ball so that it arcs over and up high enough to enter the basket from above. A parabola is a curve, shaped like an arch. It is also called a parabolic

Science Fun!

How water changes the earth's surface? Almost 3/4’s of the Earth’s surface is covered by water! Water ex-ists on Earth as ice - a solid, as a liquid and as an invisible gas called water vapor. Water has the ability to change forms over and over again. Every living thing - plants, animals and people de-pend on water to live. Liquid water evaporates from our oceans, lakes and streams. As the water vapor rises (or evaporates) into the air, it cools. Water vapor then condenses back into liquid water when it falls back to the Earth. We call that precipitation. Some of the precipitation soaks into the soil. It becomes part of the groundwater. It may stay in the ground for hundreds of yea

Powerful Protein! Did you know that your muscles, organs and immune system are made up mostly of protein? Your body uses protein you eat to make lots of specialized protein molecules that have special jobs. Protein is used to make hemoglobin which is the part of the red blood cells that carries oxygen to every part of your body! Protein builds up, maintains and replaces tissues in your body. How do you get protein in your diet? The best sources are beef, poultry, fish, eggs, dairy products (milk, yogurt, cheese), nuts (peanut butter), seeds (grains including bread and pasta), and legumes like black beans and lentils. When you eat foods with pro-tein, the digestive juices in your stomach an

Down On The Farm

Kids enjoy planting seeds, watching them sprout, and eventually harvesting what they have grown. Allowing children to become involved in the planning, caring, and harvesting of a garden not only gives parents a unique opportunity to spend time with their children, but it helps the kids develop an understanding of nature. Children also develop a sense of responsibility and pride in themselves, which can ultimately improve self-esteem. One of the best ways to encourage enthusiasm for gardening is appealing to a child’s senses by adding plants not only for the eyes, but those they can taste, smell and touch. Vegetables are always a good choice for young children. They not only germinate quickly

Pot of Gold at the End of a Rainbow! People from all over the world celebrate on March 17th in honor of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland.

Nearly 200 years later, the first St. Patrick’s Day parade in the Irish Free State was held in Dublin in 1931. Throughout the years, this celebration has evolved to become a celebration of Irish heritage. Along with legendary shamrocks, many symbols were included in festivities that are reflective of Ireland’s folklore, culture and national identity - leprechauns, ethnic foods, shamrocks, wearing green...even finding a pot of g
