Week of January 7

Each grade level spent STEM lab time the week learning about Gambia, Africa while listening to our January STEM book of the month, One Plastic Bag by Miranda Paul. We asked some questions about what we could make out of plastic bags and how we can make them. We also practiced working with plastic bags by braiding strips of bags to make bracelets. Students were challenged to complete the Take-Home challenge of creating something useful out of plastic bags. There are plenty of plastic bags in the STEM lab for students who need them. I cannot wait to see what creations come in this month.
