    The third grade has been working hard throughout the research unit. Each student crafted a question they were interesting in answering, researched the necessary subtopics, and finally compose a multi-paragraph essay to share their findings. After the research, students created slides to help support their writing and gave an oral report to the class. It was impressive how hard these students worked. All students enjoyed learning from their peers, too!

  • 4T Science Unit Using Mealworms

    Ms. Thode's fourth grade class launched our science unit on environments. In their first investigation they are observing mealworms. In this investigation, they will observe and study mealworms over a few weeks in order to help them understand how mealworm's structures and behaviors help them grow and survive. Throughout this process, the mealworms will grow and eventually change into beetles. We are so excited to watch this change and learn about how an animal's environment, as well as their structures and behaviors, support their survival!

    In the recent Mixtures and Solutions Module, the fifth graders learned how scientists use models to help explain objects, events, or systems that cannot be observed directly. The students observed models of black boxes that had different configurations of marbles and foam inside. Without opening the boxes, the students had to collaborate and use their observational skills to determine what the boxes looked like inside. Students drew 2D models and then created 3D models of the boxes to come to a consensus.
