We are currently wrapping up 2nd quarter and looking ahead to 3rd quarter. Students worked hard during 2nd quarter! Middle school students conducted research on, constructed, and launched hot air balloons. 5th graders learned about plants, their environments, and package engineering. 4th graders learned about solar energy, insulation materials, and constructed their own solar ovens. Enjoy some pictures of us trying to cook with them in the winter :)
The ovens were sent home and your student may have one. I encouraged students to try cooking with them in the spring.
3rd quarter will be filled with fun as we start a Makey Makey design unit. Please visit MakeyMakey.com for more information on the circuit invention kits.
