Third graders are wrapping up the case of Who Stole Mr. Bear. They have been pretty good crime solvers! We will begin the Color Analyzers unit next. It is a short unit and we will move to Secret Formulas following that unit.
The fourth graders have spent a lot of time on rockets and propulsion. They are doing the culminating project now, which is to design a custom rocket to complete a task. Those will fly in about two weeks. I had initially thought we'd do Dry Ice next, but I think we are going to start the Environmental Mystery instead. If there is time at the end of the year, we'll do the Dry Ice unit.
The Discovery Fifth graders have just about finished the Dry Ice unit and will be starting Paper Towel Testing soon. The Challenger Fifth graders are working on their EV3 robots in preparation for their Robotics Rodeo in June.
I'm waiting for that lamb to appear, but all I can hear out my window right now is the lion. Keeping my fingers crossed for a beautiful spring.
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/.
