On Friday August 1, 2014 students from grades 4-6 participated in a fun, exciting, and educational science activity. SHARK DISSECTION! Students were given the opportunity to dissect a dogshark. Dogsharks are the most abundant sharks in the ocean. Students learned about the anatomy and were able to recognize the different organs in the shark’s body. The activity was hands on and engaging. Perhaps one day, some of these students will be surgeons in the future!
Everyone knows that you should always wash your hands. But why? And how often? Washing your hands is the best way to prevent the spread of germs. Through this science experiment, students explores which parts of the hand are the most difficult to wash germs off of. Student learned different hand washing techniques and concluded which one is the most effective. Using a special lotion, students can see their germs under an UV flashlight. Students could see the areas that were cleaned thoroughly, and areas that need to be cleaned. Our students had a lot of fun learning about bacteria/germs and learned the importance of washing their hands thoroughly to eliminate bacteria!

At Excelsius Academy, we believe that every person is creative or has a creative potential. It has nothing to do with how well one can draw. In this fast-paced world, creative abilities are more crucial than ever. Creativity allows you to adapt to your environment. It allows you to create new ideas when the old ones are not working. By having a creative mind, it will help students become leaders and set examples for their fellow peers. It will open their minds to different possibilities and give them a new approach in life.
