What's Going on in PEN Class
PEN Report Cards
Gayman PRIMARY - Detective Science
We are looking forward to getting started with our brand new Power Up unit. In this unit we will be investigating "the way things work." The kids can look foward to a unit filled with creativity and problem solving.
Butler 3rd - Ancient Cultures
We are looking forward to beginning our architecture unit. Through this unit we will discuss architecture in our world, different architectural features, and amazing architecture. We will end the unit with a tour of Doylestown where we will study some of the unique buildings in our town.
4th Grade - Creative Problem Solving
We have officially begun our conversation about the invention process. Groups have been assigned and ideas are flying! At this point, each child has interviewed friends and family members about real-world problems they would like to see solved. As a group, they have worked to come up with many ideas to solve the problems, and are working toward analyzing the best possible solutions. Eventually, each group will be creating a prototype of the invention to be shared at the district Invention Convention. Throughout the next couple months, your child will most likely be surveying you and ransacking your house for materials for his/her invention. The invention itself will be built in the classroom. Thank you for all of your support with this.

Next, we will begin our future studies unit. This year we will focus on the First Lego League Naure's Fury Challenge. Your child will be working in a group to solve an issue that is a result of a natural disaster, as well as, program a Lego NXT robot to navigate a course with a series of obstacles.
