Our Eco-Schools Green Heroes and Monarch Heroes had a very productive week in STEM lab! Kinder conducted a campus clean-up, 1st, and 2nd started painting the pallets anchored in the garden as chrysalis shelters and began clearing the rock garden for the new walkways. In the STEM lab these groups created their own mats and obstacle courses for BeeBots and worked on math, spelling, coding, and spatial reasoning problems with OSMO. Friday everyone let their imaginations run wild creating masterpieces in LEGO, chain reactions, Keva blocks, and everything else in the lab on Free Build Friday!
3rd grade made outstanding progress on their Code.org course work and graduates enjoyed painting with the Spheros! This group also worked on pieces for their grade level Earth Day project – no pictures! This one is going to be a surprise for the whole campus when it is unveiled!
On Monday Ms. Moreno’s class made a quick trip back to the lab to wrap up their constellation projects. Then this week’s 4th and 5th grade classes had their turn to set up personal BrainPOP accounts and learned to use the Make-A-Map, Make-A-Movie, Sortify, and Game Up with Snap Thoughts features. Both grades also put in some excellent work on their grade level Earth Day projects!
