Fourth graders ‘rock’ UNITE curriculum

Beth Mills’ 4th grade students at Barbourville Independent proved this past week that they are too good for drugs.

The class has worked with Benji Hammons, prevention curriculum specialist through UNITE and Promise Neighborhood, to learn and reinforce good decision-making skills and healthy habits, which includes being drug free. On May 2, students made rock necklaces as a reminder of the good habits to utilize in life. This activity also tied in with their science rock cycle lesson.

The fourth graders explained the project best:

“We’ve been learning about rocks and the different types of rocks. Today, we’re making necklaces [out of rocks],” the fourth graders collectively explained, drawing parallels between their UNITE and science curriculum.
