                                    LIFE NOW AND IN THE FUTURE

ls1The Living Skills class at LMS focuses on how technology and every day life affects the family.  To accomplish this learning, students use computer-based instruction along with hands-on experiences to learn the subject matter.  Within this setting, students apply science and math skills to answer questions about learning in every day living.
One of the interesting components of student learning is a section on careers in each module.  The 6th, 7th and 8th graders are into their second module of the quarter, which might be any thing from child care, relationships, cooking and sewing.  Students work in pairs or in threesomes to accomplish their goals for the modules.  Pictures are of students in a cooking module and  a child care module.
