WHAT IS NEEDED TO LIGHT A BULB?

The students have been busy experimenting with energy and circuits. They are creating systems using different components. (D-cell, wires, bulbs, motors, switches etc.) Each group tested different materials to see if they were conductors or insulators. Every day, we make some new and exciting discoveries!

Designing a Classroom of the Future

Each student planned and created a map or Google presentation of their ideal classroom. Some planned on paper and some used a site called Classroom Architect. The class came up with some great ideas! They sure know what they want and what would be helpful to their learning. Comfort was a theme throughout their ideas. Some other ideas included:

* exercise room

* reading area with comfy couches, chairs, and bean bags

* lots of technology
