Brilliant Brains Bulletin- 1st

Mrs. Rhodes- February and March

Current Studies and Explorations

Students are currently studying forces and motion. Students have just recently completed building a pull robot using the newly released LEGO Education WeDo 2.0 robot and will be investigating interactions of forces by programming the robot and making observations to collect authentic data and construct claims based on the evidence they gather. This will be in the context of a student-centered project incorporating robotics, science content and practices, and English language arts.
