6th Graders Learn about Counterfeit Money

Amanda from Security First shows 6th graders security features on dollars and how to detect counterfeit money.
Amanda from Security First Bank in Chadron came to Mrs. Kaus's 6th grade Forensics Mini-Course class to talk to students about counterfeit money.  The 6th grade class did finger printing on October 1st and they will have the opportunity to match fingerprints to students in their class later this week!

Mini-course is a new class that is a part of the 6th, 7th, and 8th grade electives class rotation.  Students spend 3 weeks in a mini-course before moving to a new 3 week class.  Mini-course classes offer a range of topics from forensics to theater.  Our 5th grade students also have mini-course classes, but their mini-course classes last for an entire quarter.  The mini-course classes replaced the study hall rotation for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students and it replaced the required math tutorial and supplemental reading class in the 5th grade.
