Third and fourth grade students at the Carroll County Christian Academy are studying the classification of animals in science class. To help them understand animal families, each student created a science notebook of animal pictures. There are six sections in the book, one for each vertebrate classification and one for invertebrate. Each section consisted of a title page, characteristics page, a report on one animal and at least five pictures of different animals.

The project has a dual purpose as it also teaches beginning organizational skills and following project instructions to the students.

“It was an enjoyable project and an important learning experience,” said Teacher Joan Dawson.

CANTON SOUTH – It took four overtime periods, but the Carrollton boys basketball team picked up their first league win of the season last week, 66-64, in thrilling fashion.

It was the second win of the season for the Warriors, against nine losses, and their lone Northeastern Buckeye Conference victory against five losses.

“Practice sure was a lot easier the next day,” Warrior Coach Todd English jokingly said. “The boys played hard. It was a great win and a great feeling.”

The two teams were deadlocked at the end of the first period, 8-8. Carrollton held an eight-point advantage at halftime, 20-2 and stretched the lead to 31-21 at the end of the third period.
