Most of the 29 primary and lowest priced cialis intermediate schools of the South Bend Community School Corporation (SBCSC) have been transformed into fantastic exhibits of student work related to comets and the solar system.  After all-school assemblies and teacher workshops, students have created art, letters, poems, graphic designs, and scale models of the solar system in the hallways.

Witness the halls of Jackson Intermediate Center.  On a recent tour, teacher Salima Oudghiri showed off the viagra 100 mg price handiwork of students, which hinted at the investigation, thought, and creativity that went into the best online generic levitra school-wide exhibit.  Here are some examples that more people need to see.IMG_3937.JPG

Science involves prediction.  Near a countdown to Comet ISON's perihelion, a graph from a survey of students suggests a greater percentage of the younger students expected the comet to survive perihelion than the older students.

I read love letters to Comet ISON from planet Earth, and observed applications of Predict, Connect, Design, Create.  Students created art using computer graphics, shadow boxes, and pastels alike.  Even the find cialis no prescription required grouping of the art was fun.

We hear plenty of cialis 20mg less favorable news about schools these days.  I'm standing up to say something positive about the administrators, principals, staff, and students of South Bend Community School Corporation (SBCSC).  Thanks for welcoming comet science in the schools and connecting STEM education to current events in nature.

Ten pieces from each of 33 South Bend schools will be on display at the Colfax Cultural Center in South Bend from November 19 through December 19, 2013.  I encourage you to see the selected works at Colfax or to brand levitra without prescription buy request permission to visit a South Bend school near you. They've done well and deserve credit.
