Marvelous Monday in Third Grade

Yesterday was the last Monday of summer school, but that wasn’t the only reason that made for a “Marvelous Monday”.  First, Third-graders enjoyed popsicles courtesy of Joy and Jaelynn. We then visited Mr. Watt’s science classroom in the high school.  Mr. Watt demonstrated how a 3D printer works.  He also demonstrated the principal of inertia using a pencil, string, a cup of water, and a “cup holder”. He used the 3D printer to create the “cup holder”. We all took turns swinging the cup around WITHOUT spilling the water!  Thank you, Mr. Watt, for helping to make our Monday even more marvelous.  We look forward to more experiences with the 3D printer, and we are excited about the opportunities this provides to our students.

Hello? Anyone There?

In science last week, Fourth-grade students learned how sound travels. Through a video, the students learned about what makes sound and how it travels. Then they made a "telephone", wrote a hypothesis about what would happen when they went to use their telephone, and then tested their creations. To conclude the lesson, the students discussed the results and what could be done differently.
