Last Friday we gave 200 marshmallows and 200 toothpicks to teams of three and asked them to build the tallest but most stable structure they could. The final record was 10 inches (two teams tied).
We spent the afternoon on a fun STEM (Science Technology Engineering and Math) activity using marshmallows and toothpicks. We added some stop-motion movie magic with Lego Movie Maker and made the videos below. Enjoy!
Some students made some short, oral reports on a character from their book using the iPad app Tellagami. Check out the "Gamis" below.
On Friday we used balloons to learn about static electricity. Check out the videos below.
We had a wonderful first day of school in room 18. The scholars worked hard and are adjusting well to fourth grade.
It was a pleasure to meet many of the parents this morning. Looking forward to Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 2.
