Mind Missions

Dear 3rd Grade parents:

We are starting something called Mind Missions in Social Studies. It is way to include instruction and practice in creative problem solving. Mind Missions is engaging and builds team work. It is hands-on and will have your kids excited about learning. We will learn the content then they will be given a mission to accomplish based on what they learned. We are very excited to get started on this but we need some help. They will need items to complete their mission and we are asking for donations to help with that. Here is a list of the things we need. Thank you for your help!

ITEMS:

Masking tape

Coffee filters

Cotton balls

Craft sticks

Cups (paper)

Paper plates

Pipe cleaners

Aluminum foil
