Decisions the students in Michelle Turnwald’s Van Wert Middle School class make affect the outcome of the simulation in “Mystery Disease”. In this simulation, a serious illness is sweeping through town. Why are people getting sick? What is the source of this disease? With this problem-based learning unit, students become public health workers as they track down the source of a mysterious illness.
Congratulations to the Van Wert Elementary Students of the Week! The following children were chosen as representatives of the Word of the Week, Commitment: (Pictured with Mr. Krogman, Assistant Principal) Grade 1, Raven; Grade 2, Evan; Grade 3, Olivia; Grade 4, Finley; and Grade 5, Jordyn. Each student received a free Mighty Kids Meal from the local McDonald’s and a certificate from WERT Radio. (VWCS photo)
