North AIG students visit Horizons

By Mikayla Mather
North Rowan Middle
North Rowan Middle School’s sixth-grade Academically and Intellectually Gifted (AIG) class recently attended a field trip to Horizons.
The students did all kinds of activities on the topic of fossils.
Prior to this field trip, they read the book, “My Daniel,” by Pam Conrad.
The book had to do with Julia Summerwaithe and how she decided to visit her grandchildren in New York City. She had something important to show them. In the Natural History Museum was the dinosaur she and her brother discovered on their farm in Nebraska when they were young.
The trip to Horizons was with all the other sixth-grade AIG students from around the county.
Students were put into groups with students from other schools before traveling around to various stations which included a fossil hunt, research station on the laptops, identification of different types of shark teeth, identification of unknown objects and fossils and painting of fossil replicas.
