East Hall 7th-graders create interactive Biome Museum
Biome Picture
East Hall Middle seventh-grader Faith Hollis displays her portion of the school’s interactive biome museum the East Hall seventh-graders created in May.

The seventh-grade students of East Hall Middle School created an interactive Biome Museum on May 20.

The museum had a tropical rainforest, marine environment, desert and more. The students worked together with their science classes to decorate the classrooms and hallways to represent eight of the nine major biomes.

In the aquatic zone, students lead a “petting zoo” with baby musk turtles. In the tropical rainforest, students made drip tips, cleaned up oil spills and “ate bugs” to see natural selection at work. In the desert, students built a biome and tried on animal adaptations.

The students acted as guides and showed enthusiasm and expertise in their project for more than 300 visitors.
