Shadow and Light

First graders enjoyed learning how shadows were formed and creating their own shadow art. This was based on the work of Tim Noble and Sue Webster.

Students were given the following materials and asked to create a sculpture.

Here they are creating.

This is one of the finished products. The students told me that their shadow looked like 3 people dancing together.

Hour of Code and Computer Science week

During the month of December students in grades 1-5 will be introduced to coding.  Students in grades 3-5 will be going onto code.org and using code to complete some computer programs. In addition, they will playing around with Spheros (robots). Students in first and second grade will learn coding by trying to get a toy mouse through a maze to get cheese.
