What's my child doing in PACE?
First Graders are finishing up our Beatrix Potter unit and will be ending the semester with fun investigations in science, with cool experiments. They'll also be learning and applying the scientific process.
Second Graders are in the middle of a unit entitled If the Shoe Fits. This interesting unit focuses on creativity, literary elements, mathematics. Who knew you could do so much with a shoe?
Third Graders are finishing up their Astronomy Unit and will soon be visited by volunteers from the City of Plano Live Green Sustainability Division to build Solar Powered Cars!
Fourth Graders are deep into our Robotics unit. Students are constructing complicated obstacle courses, where their robot programming will allow their unit to rescue humankind from dangerous environments.
Fifth Graders are having an awesome experience learning the Stock Market Game. They are researching mutual funds, buying and selling stocks, and investigating changes in the market. You might seek investment advice from them, if you trade.
