7th Grade

7th grade GT did a team building and communication LEGO challenge. They also made Christmas cards for the Fire Fighters as a way to foster empathy and kindness. They also had Mr. Braun, our district technologist, come in and do three days of lessons on virtual reality using the VR headset. Below are photos of the GT students making Christmas cards that will be delivered this week to the fire station.
