Kindergartners engineered an umbrella that was sturdy enough, big enough, and waterproof enough to protect their stuffed animal from the “rain”.
First graders learned about pill bugs (or roly-poly bugs) and designed a “Pillbot”. Using biomimicry, students copied features from the pill bug to create their own robot. First graders also learned what animals do during the harsh winter months. These engineers followed the design process and constructed animal dens based on whether their selected animal hibernates or bromates.
Second graders designed a windbreak to protect their doghouses from the wind. In learning about erosion, the objective was to stop, or at least slow down sand from blowing in the wind. Math Facts!
Third graders worked on mastering multiplication basic facts. Kahoot! quizzes provided a friendly competition among mathematicians. Memorizing basic facts will make math so much easier this year and for many years to come. Keep practicing, third-grade math masters!
Fourth graders explored circuits and literally and figuratively brightened someone’s day with a circuit valentine using copper foil tape, a button cell battery, and LED light.
Fifth graders are working through the scientific process as they prepare for the Science Fair. Students satisfied their personal curiosities about the world around them. Presentations will be given on Thursday before Spring Break.
