NORTH CANTON - In Mr. Dusty Dannemiller's sixth grade science class at North Canton Middle School the students are taking a break from their normal textbook lesson in geology.
Instead, they're watching ABC News reports online and getting a lesson in current events and the science behind what's happening in Japan.
The students are full of questions and are very interested in what's going on in the world. They say it's because "Mr. D" makes learning fun by dancing and even dressing up in costumes during class.
During on class, "Mr. D" dressed up like a giant hot dog. It was part of a contest for a chance for the school to win 20 notebook computers.
The kids say that is the kind of thing Mr. Dannemiller does, which seems to get the their attention and makes the class more enjoyable.
