Who is GWC?

January6

If you have guessed George Washington Carver, then you are correct! Many people today know George Washington Carver largely from the myths that have grown around him. The fact is, he did not invent peanut butter; it existed before his time. He did create new purposes for peanuts – purposes that help the farmers be successful with their crops.

The truth about Carver is much more interesting than the myths. He was a man with a fascinating life story and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, who overcame tremendous odds to become one of America’s most versatile scientists. He was a trail-blazing proponent of sustainability, who believed that “nature produces no waste” and neither should man. He was a humanitarian whose primary goal was, as he put it, “to help the farmer and fill the poor man’s empty dinner pail.”

In a nutshell, GWC was a scientist innovator, inventor, teacher, and agriculturalist! We will be diving into GWC’s historical contributions this semester. It’s time to put on our inventor’s cap and do some thinking OUTSIDE the BOX!

First Grade STEM Activity

October13

What does the Arrow, Dart, Stealth, Moth, and Ring all have in common? They are all different types of paper airplanes, whose structure effects flight. The students first had to research inquiry questions involving paper airplanes, then they had to us eth technology to guide them through the construction of each plane. My visual learners learned rather quickly to READ the details on the left side of the screen otherwise their planes did not look like they should have. Amelia Earhart would have been proud of us if she was in our classroom!

Shark Tank (Bahrville Style)

October13

As we are approaching our design portion for InVenture, the students had a “taste” of what it may be like presenting their invention with a well rehearsed pitch. This was a mock trail for presenting their SCAMPERED ice cream cone to a panel of Addison’s four sharks. It was an EXCELLENT learning experience!

Pablo Picasso STEM Sculptures

October5

It was an engineering day in Bahrville as my geniuses designed and constructed a Pablo Picasso Sculpture. They had a budget of $20 and had to construct a sculpture standing 18 inches high, 4 inches wide, and have at least three 3D objects presented. It was not an easy task, though they shined with their teamwork and originality.

STEM with Paper Planes

Have you ever wondered…

How far can a paper airplane fly?

Are paper airplanes just for fun?

Can you make your own paper airplane?

We will be using this Wonderopolis website to help us develop a better understanding of paper airplanes and their flights.
