Some of our students got to visit Hannibal on Wednesday. Their trip started at the Mark Twain Cave and ended with a riverboat cruise!
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
For the past couple of weeks our 4th grade students have been learning Spanish thanks to the high school Spanish classes. Today we celebrated with a fiesta!
Build A Tiny House
Today student applied their knowledge of area, perimeter, and geometry to design and build a tiny house. This project based learning activity focused on design elements, problem solving skills, and collaboration.
Today students were challenged to create a free standing tower using only 7 newspaper dowels and 2 ft. of painters tape. Each group had 35 minutes to complete their tower. What they came up with was impressive!
For this activity, students were given 1 cup, 1 spoon, 6 Popsicle sticks, 2 rubber bands, and 2 feet of tape to create a launcher.
They came up with some amazing ideas and we all had an absolute blast testing them out!
Today the students were challenged to build a 1 foot bridge using 25 Popsicle sticks and 3 feet of tape. Their goal was to design a bridge that was both strong and aesthetically pleasing!
Jelly Bean Engineering:
Students were challenged to build a structure using toothpicks and jelly beans to protect their bubble gum egg.
The Problem: The kids' mittens are all wet. They need to dry out.
Challenge: Build a clothesline that will hold mittens
