Escape From North Magoffin Elementary NME Escape Room Lesson on Constitution

This is 5th grade Social Studies class at North Magoffin.

The Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States are the two most important, and enduring documents in our Nation’s
history. However, they  can be a rather hard subject to get kids interested in. I wanted kids to be engaged, use problem solving, communicate, and collaborated. The library is a perfect place to do these things. The lesson is an introduction lesson about the Constitution. An escape room is typically a scenario built around a specific theme. Students are given a set of puzzles and clues that need to be solved in order to escape the room (or whatever the given time limit).

School to be cancelled for Solar Eclipse Event Solar Eclipse

The Magoffin County School Board members and administrators have decided, in the interest of student safety, to dismiss classes on Monday, August 21st in observance of the solar eclipse. Superintendent Scott Helton and school officials made the determination to cancel classes since the eclipse will occur toward the end of the day when buses are lining up to transport children home.

“At a time when it would be impossible to keep the eyes of all students from looking at the harmful rays during the eclipse, we felt it best to keep them and their vision safe, which is our primary concern. Most of Kentucky will experience the eclipse and like many other districts in our area, we decided that it was in the best interest of our students to cancel all scheduled classes on Monday, August 21st.”

Though students will not be at school when the eclipse takes place, teachers, parents, and students are encouraged to learn more about this unique event, which last occurred 99 years ago, by researching and discovering lesson plans that will help them understand and learn about the historic and scientific implications of the solar eclipse.
