Updates/Pictures from Last Week:

Students in 1st grade learned about the 6 parts of a plant in a garden lesson. They even got to use Mrs Dunham as a model. During science 1st grade learned about animal traits. Students worked collaboratively to discuss and brainstorm while matching traits between baby animals and their parents.


2nd grade has started their estimation station. Each week a student will bring in a bucket of objects and the rest of the class will use their estimation skills to try and be the closest guess.


3rd grade conducted a science experiment to learn about where an animal could best survive. They measured ice melt to determine best insulation. They used thermometers to measure temps in celsius to come to their conclusion which resulted in a snow cave as the best insulator.


Students in grades 3-5 had a blast at Friday OOB. They used their tools to take apart, tinker, and explore everyday objects and how they work. Items included speakers, lights, toaster, skis, vacuum, and Mr Niles project snowmobile. Students also developed and designed paper airplanes. Students did a bit of research about what makes a paper airplane fly/glide best and then set to creating a flying machine. Students then did test flights and discussed what worked, changes that could be made, and ideas for improvement.
