Grade Level Highlights - 4th Grade

4th grade has been working on prepositional phrases this week. That's not the most exciting topic although the teachers had the students create cool displays for their hall.


In a science lesson on investigation, students worked as teams to use a balloon, string, tape, and straws to see how far they could make their balloon move, They then tested their models. Students were highly engaged in this STEM lesson!
