Just a quick update.
We started the Who Stole Mr. Bear Unit in third grade with some observation games to hone our skills for crime scene observation. They have created a picture of the crime scene and evidence that will be tested in our crime lab next week. Something fishy has been going on in here!
The fourth graders have made some pretty impressive rocket launches in the last few weeks. I know the kids are really enjoying the fun, and I hope they are learning a lot! We only have a couple more weeks on this unit, then on to Dry Ice along with the fifth graders. Dry Ice won't be a fifth grade unit next year and I didn't want them to miss out. All the kids really love Dry Ice!
Our fifth grade Robotics Rodeo is scheduled for February 12th at Discovery. Then the students will begin Dry Ice the week after winter break. I know they are sad to see the robots go and so am I. They do so much problem solving in this unit. What a great way to learn to collaborate and problem solve.
Fifth grade at Challenger has been working with Dry Ice and will finish that unit and begin their robotics study next week. I know they are really looking forward to it.
Have a very Happy Valentine's Day and a wonderful second winter break.
The students in the SAGE program, along with their teachers, want to thank the IssaquahSchools Foundation for their donation of LEGO EV3 Robotics Kits. These kits allow all 5thgrade SAGE students to participate in this great STEM activity. ISF supports our studentswith contributions made to their organization by the Issaquah community. Find out how youcan be a part of this worthwhile endeavor at http://issaquahschoolsfoundation.org/.
