3D Christmas Trees

Hello!

4th and 5th grade are working on being crafty.  Today we made 3D Christmas Trees, or at least started on them. They are complicated, require a good bit of folding and PATIENCE.

Here is the link, if you want to make a few of your own!

We also worked on making paper snowflakes.  Here is the video for that:

 

Happy making!

Makerspace 2017 is off!

This week we opened Makerspace to students.  They come in one morning a week, depending on grade level and work on projects.  This week, they created bookmarks, made a Flipgrid presentation on Makerspace rules, and created a large drawing of outer space.

We are working toward being independent, and making more things that they can take home since they love to do that.

Next week, we will add some STEM bins that students can work on independently.

Watch here for more fun information and pictures!

Meeting for 4th and 5th graders!

Science Lab and Technology

We have been lucky enough to be included in Science Lab Fridays that Mrs. Davis and Mrs. Eitenmiller are doing. Today, we worked with kindergarten to learn what tools a Scientist uses in their work.  In the Learning Commons, we did the technology piece and students showed us in a video what they have learned. Watch and enjoy!
