Operation Day of Innovation 1/22/14

Purpose

Students will engage in high-interest and hands-on lessons throughout the day. This is the 100th day of school, so some activities will have the "100" theme.

A Few Examples of Activities Throughout the Day

5th Grade - Students will read Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes. One activity is that they will construct origami cranes.

2nd Grade - One activity is that students will extract and study DNA from Strawberries.
