News from the Library
In 5th grade library class, students chose a topic related to Exploration (to go along with their Social Studies and Reading Curriculum) Using PebbleGo Next and books, they had to identify a problem that their explorers faced . We used the Makers on the Move cart to design a solution to their problem. Thanks to Mrs. Logue for helping with this project as well!
