In January, students at SHS Altoona had the opportunity to learn about many different types of fossils. They participated in several projects, from learning to take data as they watched orange peels dry separately or buried in the dirt to preserve them, to making their own molds and tracing fossils using chicken bones from their lunch, seashells, orange peels and their own fingerprints. Students enjoyed the projects and are set to become future paleontologists!
Students from the Altoona and State College Soaring Heights Schools campuses visited the residents at Maybrook Hills Rehabilitation and Healthcare Center and conducted caroling. Students sang various seasonal carols and also presented small gifts to the residents. Students then went to the Altoona school site for lunch and seasonal activities.
