Learning Collaboration in Discovery
As adults in this school we have the opportunity to watch amazing moments from young people in our school, in every community, everyday. Team Discovery had one of those moments that was certainly worth sharing. The 4th grade students were paired with a 6th grade student to share how they solved their homework questions. The role of our 6th graders was to listen for accuracy and help catch any misconceptions in their work. The math dialogue between all partnerships was amazing and the teamwork and respect was wonderful to witness. The 4th graders were given the opportunity to show off what they have learned, while the 6th graders were able to feel how far they grown as math students.The adults on our team were able to sit back and observe this amazing collaboration! This was a proud moment! #Raider Pride!

Our Snack for the Day is Banana

There are more than 100 varieties of bananas, some even have red skin.  Bananas are the most popular in the united states.  Americans eat an average of 28 pounds of bananas per year.  That equals to about 112 bananas per person per year. Bananas have high levels of sugars, starch, potassium and vitamins A and C.

Hawaii is the only place in the U.S. where bananas are grown commercially. The overwhelming majority of the bananas Americans eat come from tropical countries.

The type of banana you see in the supermarket is called a Cavendish banana. The preferred variety was originally the Gros Michel, which essentially became extinct by 1960, thanks to a fungus called Panama disease.  The Cavendish banana is also in danger of going extinct for the same reason.
