Project: Spider Web Bridges

Last Friday we started a project in which the students needed to plan and create a bridge using only cups, tape, yarn and scissors. We then tested the bridges to see how many cubes could be held. The students than revised their bridge and tested again. We learned a lot about working in groups and being like scientists who plan, test and repeat the process to improve their work. We will do more STEM type projects throughout the year! Here are some pictures! 

Last Friday we also watched the Homecoming Parade!

Reminder: This week we are having Parent/Student/Teacher conferences. I'm looking forward to seeing your family on Thursday or Friday. 

Tomorrow we will be going to the PAC for a play! I'll post some pictures. 

Wednesday the Fire Department will be visiting school to teach us about Fire Safety.
