Coding at Buck - no PEBKAC here!
During library class this week, every student at Pearl Buck got to participate in a worldwide campaign to expose every student in the world to computer science through our "Hour of Code" activities. Students made binary bracelets and did some other activities to show the basics of coding. The photos below show students caught in the act of coding, with the center picture showing students proudly displaying their certificates and binary bracelets.
Thanks to our PTO parent volunteers for their assistance with our recent Holiday Shop!
Fourth Grade Social Studies
Students in the fourth grade have been enjoying the new Social Studies program, “Pennsylvania, Our Home”. Ms. Bowman’s class was inspired by timelines of historical figures, Lucretia Mott, Richard Allen, Chief Pontiac, and William Penn and created their own for a class presentation. Students also wrote biographies on their “chosen person in history”, centering on the character traits that made these historical figures so important in our lives.
