Laurens Middle School students get 'hands-on' with learning

Oct 11 Written by  STAFF REPORTS

Teachers at Laurens Middle School are constantly striving to find ways to have their students involved in hands-on activities which support their lessons.

Recently, students in Nick Cox's 8th grade social studies classes stepped back in time as they walked to the Joe Adair Outdoor Education Center for some interactive activities related to pioneer life. Adair Center Director Clay Cotney and Cox both assisted and supervised the students during these living history lessons.

Students in Michael Waldrop's 6th grade social studies group at LMS were all wrapped up in their lesson on ancient Egypt as they collaborated in small groups to make mummies. 

Waldrop and student volunteers were the mummies for this exciting activity that involved wrapping their mummies and completing them with hieroglyphics.

Waldrop is pictured as a mummy along with sixth grade students (l to r): Nathan Lindley, Owen Sharp, Allen Wilkie and Zach Handley.
