Chalk talk


_ The annual Greywolf Science Fair was held in conjunction with Family Night on June 3. There were 183 projects entered into the fair this year. Topics ranged from experiments with chemistry to plant sciences. Kindergarten through second grade completed whole-class experiments, third grade focused on small group consumer science projects, fourth-graders partnered up for their experiments, and fifth-graders each completed a project. We are thankful for our science teacher Carla Morton for all her hard work. Several hundred people were able to view the projects and enjoy the evening with friends and family. The PTA gave away hot dogs and held the raffle. It was a huge success!

Yellow looks like fireflies dancing in the moon light,

Yellow feels like a blazing hot sun beating on your face,

Yellow smells like daisies waving in the wind,

Yellow tastes like a sour lemon twisting your face,

Yellow sounds like a buzzing bee searching for flowers.

By Katelyn Wake

Natural Disasters....

Blue looks like a tsunami,

Plunging into the inland of Hawaii.

Brown looks like dust,

From a windy desert in Utah.

White looks like a blizzard,

Ripping through the snowy plains in Antarctica.

Yellow looks like lightning,

Blasting in the heavens.

Silver looks like a twister,

The spinal column twirling down, ripping the vast land.

Grey looks like wind,

Fighting the storm coming close.

Black feels like an earthquake,

Shaking the towns and cities.

Red looks like a volcano,

Spitting up hot sauce.

Dark grey looks like ash,

After a blast from a fiery monster.

Yellow looks like the sun,

After a natural disaster.

Blue is the color of the sky

Blue is the color of the splashing ocean

Blue is the color of jeans when you first buy them

But most of all, it is the color of the water that makes up 75 percent of the Earth

Blue is what we need to protect

By Isaiah Whitney


Red is like fire rising up,

Then falling,

Knowing where it's going at all times,


It keeps going.

Red can be the eyes,

Of a vampire,


They are hypnotizing

You feel fear,

Taking over,

As the eyes stare into you.

Red feels rough,


But sometimes soft.

By Madelynn Potts
