What is happening in STEAM
The fourth-grade classes created straw bucket towers with the goal of holding the most amount of pennies. The students worked hard designing and redesigning their structures to hopefully increase the number of pennies their structures were able to hold. In the end, 4 groups were able to hold 400+ pennies. The groups include; Michael, Nathaniel, and Max, Santino, Zach and Elijiah, and AJ, Justin and Noah from Ms. Veltre/Ostrowski's class and Rochelle and Jayden from Mrs. Lafferman's class.
In technology, both grade levels are learning how to code using code.org. They have to use logical thinking and critical thinking skills to solve and complete specific tasks in the courses they are enrolled in. We recently completed our Coding Challenge where students had one class period to try and complete one of the Hour of Code activities from code.org. If they were successful, they received a certificate of achievement and were recognized at our school wide morning meeting.
