Students, staff, and families have enjoyed reading our One School, One Book story of Spring According to Humphrey. Culminating activities today included jugglers from Case Western Reserve University and students dancing their way out of the gym to the Hamster Dance. Thank you to everyone who participated in our Signs of Spring bulletin board, Family reading pictures, and all the fun!
Second graders will take part in a Forces and Motion STEM rotation over the next few weeks. Activities focus on building marshmallow launchers, creating marble tube runs, and many more hands-on activities to reinforce curriculum.
Students engaged in activities this week during our latest Science Discovery Zone! This DZ Day focused on animal classifications and understanding why animals have the parts they do. Students held cockroaches, touched mice, and examined a variety of animal parts such as bones, feathers, pelts, and more. Thank you to Mrs. Claridge and our always wonderful parent volunteers for making Science DZ days possible!
Third graders tie STEM and science content standards together as they study rocks and minerals. Using a variety of types of candy and cookies as rocks and minerals, students create formations that demonstrate how sedimentary rock is formed, then apply pressure to show how it can change over time.
