    The Stars Challenge Competition at Monmouth University
         Stars Challenge  Stars Challenge 2
    Congratulations to the following students for participating in and being chosen as a finalist in the Stars Challenge Science
    Competition at Monmouth University on Saturday, December 4, 2010.  These students are researching how to improve our
    recycling and composting efforts here at Antrim.  Although we did not win the competition, our team did receive a computer
    video recorder for classroom use. I am very proud of the students for their efforts and I am confident that the work they did
    will have a positive impact on our school and community.

     *See the article & picture in the Asbury Park Press on Tues, 12/1010 for details!  *

    MAY 10, 2010   WE ARE NOW STUDYING PLANTS ! 
    • How do we classify them?
    • How do they reproduce?
    • Can you name the parts of a flower and a leaf and tell what it's job is??
    • What adaptations have they made over time to survive to...                                   "TAKE OVER THE WORLD!!"
    • What species are the 'exceptions to the rules'? 
    • How does worm composting help plants grow?
    %%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%


    Check our these photos of the 7th graders teaching the younger grades about invertebrates. I am very proud of their work!
