7th graders at Our Lady of the Lake School learn how to be leaders from a Service Learning Curriculum through the Missionary Discipleship Institute. Students also perform the Living Stations of the Cross during Lent. We dive into medieval history and explore the significant science, arts, and technology contributions made during that time period. We also explore our state's rich history, from its beginnings as a territory to the contemporary Washington state many of us call home. In spring, the students take their learning on the road, seeing and experiencing different parts of Washington. 7th graders will grapple with various literary themes as well as crafting informative and argumentative writing.
The slideshow below shows artifacts created by the 7th graders. This project, with an accompanying essay, was a summative assessment at the end of our studies on the Middle Ages.
