Congratulations to all!
6th grade: Students are researching earthquakes. They are designing an earthquake-proof structure. Students will work in teams and assume the role of architect, treasurer, or project manager.

These girls are constructing a Native American dwelling called a Chickee.
4th Grade: Students are learning about Forces and Motion through the Hotwheels Speedometry curriculum.
These fourth grade boys are using Hot Wheels cars and tracks to learn about potential and kinetic energy.
3rd Grade: Students are learning about circuitry using Little Bits. Little Bits are electronic building blocks.
These third grade boys collaborate as they work with Little Bits.
2nd Grade: Students are creating pet rocks and designing playground equipment that can hold their pet rocks. Students will work as a team to design and create a twisty slide, jungle gym, and other playground equipment.
1st Grade: Students are designing and building houses for the 3 Little Pigs. The structures should be strong enough to withstand a puff of air from Big Bad Wolf (a blowdryer)!
These first grade girls constructed a house out of bricks to keep their pigs safe from the Big Bad Wolf.
Kindergarten: Students will be completing nursery rhyme STEAM challenges! We have completed challenges from Humpty Dumpty and Hey Diddle, Diddle.

In STEAM, students in 3rd Grade have been using Little Bits, electronic building blocks that snap together with magnets, to learn about creating circuits! The power source blocks, input blocks and output blocks are all color coded, and they have been learning about how the input affects the output by tying in the Reading skill, "cause and effect!"
