Applying for High Schools
With the new year beginning and the end of the year rapidly approaching the seventh grade is continuing to work through the Earth Science topics. We are currently studying the atmosphere and the weather. Students are encouraged to supplement their learning by viewing the assigned videos on the Google Classroom.
The second trimester exam will be a science experiment that will soon be assigned. Students will experiment using the scientific method and present their findings to the class in digital form along with a written report.

The Eighth Grade Trip
Each year Ware Academy’s Eighth Grade completes it’s study of the Chesapeake Bay with a week long journey through the Bay’s watershed. The trip takes the class to the northern most reaches of the watershed to the head waters of the Susquehanna River. The students are able to see firsthand the many challenges and issues that affect the Bay’s health.
Arriving in Potter County Pennsylvania the class spends two days and a night on a tributary of the Susquehanna by rafting, or sometimes canoeing, students explore the waterway and surrounding forest. The class members work with scientists from the USGS laboratory to learn how to determine stream health and are shown a whole range of topics being researched at the lab. Students explore the flora and fauna during an overnight backpacking experience and a thirty mile mountain bike trip.
The class returns to school with a greater understanding of the challenges faced in preserving the Chesapeake and our earth.
