Mrs. Gander

Only 39 days of school left and we are busy! We are very excited about what we have planned for the month of March. Each week we are working on a different STEM activity. We will be conducting science experiments through hands on testing and observations. We just finished an engineering experiment to create our own umbrellas out of classroom materials. When completed we tested our designs with a water bottle to see which design kept the most moisture off of the paper towel. We are going to finish our engineering unit with a lesson about the three little pigs and the construction of their homes. We are looking forward to building our own houses and testing the designs against the “big bad wolf” (hair dryer). Each week the kids are very excited to put their creativity to use, they are focusing on problem solving strategies and are learning how to work cooperatively in small groups without teacher direction.
