Hutchinson Middle School - 7 teachers are asking, "How much is 1 million?"
In a project that began late last school year, a group of nine colleagues at HMS-7 and friends embarked on a mission to read 1 million pages.
The mission continues with the group at about a third of their goal – more than 332,000 pages, said Lori Meis, teacher at HMS-7.
Original members of the HMS-7 reading group were Debbie Spence, Josh Dellenbach, Donna Davis, Alma Henry, Ian Anderson, Meis, Sue Howard, Sarah Ellegood and Bonnie Ballard.
Since then, the group has added friends and family members of those nine. A Weebly site for the project has been set up at www.millionpages.weebly.com.
Later in the year teachers plan on collecting a million Rice Krispies so the kids can see how much space that takes and extrapolate that to how much space a million cars or a million people would fill.
