Seventh-grade students at Holy Ghost Catholic School in Hammond participated in a cross-curricular activity last month that involved science and social studies.

Social studies teacher Emily Wagner asked students to research ice cream and create a PowerPoint commercial using their research. Once the commercials were presented, science teacher Sue Gautier gave each student the materials they needed to make ice cream.
