Today I was watching a group of “tough” fifth grade boys playing touch football out at recess. I happened to catch them in a moment of pure awesome. Check it out for yourselves, and have a great weekend!
What an amazing morning! We are so proud of all our students! Here are just a few photos of some of the creative inventions. When I get the video from HCPS-TV I will post it here, and email the link out to you all. Thank you for all you did at home to support the creative design process of all our innovative thinkers and problem solvers!
Today we practiced figuring out pitches and reviewed open and closed circuits using Scratch and a neat programmable circuit board called a Makey Makey! Ask your child how they used cups of water to figure out the correct notes from lowest to highest pitch. Some students even tried to play simple songs!
Lesson learned! Don’t drink the lake water!! Mason M brought in a sample of the water from our very own Echo Lake Park, and we found some tiny insects, saw LOTS of algae, as well as some euglena, and other single-celled protists! There’s a lot of life in one drop of lake water! While we took turns examining the slides and the pond water, other students got to explore the classroom with the digital Zoomy microscopes! Cool and gross all at once! Even Mrs. Yonce had to come in and check it out!
We had a great time creating 3D models of plant and animal cells on Tinkercad! We voted on our 3 favorites, and printed them on the 3D printers! Check them out below! Your child can always print theirs at a local library as well.
