Kindergartners discovered the trick to magnets. After forming a hypothesis about items on a tray, these scientists tested their educated guesses. Then, looking around the classroom and using the new information, students made conjectures about other possible magnetic things.
First graders learned what animals do during the harsh winter months. Then, these engineers followed the design process and constructed animal dens based on whether their selected animal hibernates or bromates.
Second graders tested the absorbency of four different materials. Then, using group and class data, they selected one material that they would use in their flood barrier. Stay tuned to find out if their chosen material protects their dog houses.
Third graders have moved on to Geometry in math. They use their Dash driver’s licenses from second grade to show their understanding of perimeter and polygons by programming their robots using specific algorithms. In addition, many students learned how to loop their code to decrease the number of steps. Shortcuts are a mathematician’s best friend!
Fourth graders continue to explore circuits. Using Little Bits, students created full circuits and were challenged with keeping the light on while only having the buzzer sound with control.
Fifth graders are worked through the scientific process as they prepare for the Science Fair. Students satisfied their curiosities about the world around them. Presentations were given on Friday before Spring Break.
