Amelia Middle School Eighth Grade students participated in the first annual GEO Fair Thursday, November 13, 2013. Students spent the past few weeks researching and creating projects that encompassed a variety of Geology topics as enrichment to our class Earth Science unit. Students learned about volcanoes, earthquakes, rocks, minerals, caves, soil, aurora borealis, the earth's layers and other geology features. Families came to look at projects and participate in several student demonstrations.
Guest speakers, Judy Krebs, from the Clermont County Water and Soil Consortium and John Gillespie, retired Park District Naturalist, spoke about fossils and invasive species. This was a wonderful event that brought over two-hundred and fifty guests out to celebrate our students and their learning about our Earth.
Amelia Middle School's PTSO was on hand selling sweet treats and spirit wear. The night was a great success filled with positivity and pride. Another great example of Amelia Barons striving for excellence at West Clermont Schools.
