Professor Perseverance

Professor Perseverance visited our class on Monday! She showed the class what it means to have perseverance. Using a picture book as a tool to engage the students, the class discussed how the characters in the book had perseverance.


Then the class participated in activities that caused the kids to use perseverance. Using cubes, each student needed to construct a 3D figure. In addition, they had to draw a model of their 3D figure! It was a great visual spacial lesson.
