1st Grade - Contribution

First Graders have spent the last two weeks working on a project called, Not A Stick. They brainstormed ideas about what their popcycle stick could turn into with added details. We had slides, dragonflies, microphones, and more.Then these students wrote a creative story using three random words from a wordbank focusing on a person, place and thing. Their stories needed to be about their drawings using the three random words (forced connection). Lastly, they learned to use a digital app called Doceri in order to talk about the process of Not A Stick.

These are uploaded into their Google Drive, LEAD folder for you to view.

2nd Grade - Systems

Second Graders looked at the system of Rebus puzzles. They learned to solve some at first, and now they are in the process of creating those.

3rd Grade - Power

Third Graders learned about the POWER of nonverbal and verbal communication trying to solve the Leadership Puzzle.

4th Grade - Exploration

Fourth graders are exploring different types of bridges, their stability, and function. They got to choose the difficulty level of the bridges they built.

5th Grade - Change

Fifth Graders have been working on some logical reasoning with a holiday puzzle and creativity with a draw start. They have also been using student voice and giving input on our future Spark Talks this spring.
