What is your superpower?
Students at Federal Furnace experienced Science, this week, both hands on and virtually. In grades 3-5 they used, our district owned, Google Glasses to “visit” places like the Museum of Natural History, as well as the Arctic. They learned about everything from ecosystems, to animals and camouflage.
Mrs. Pierce’s 2nd grade class learned about states of matter. They made predictions and observations while experimenting with balloons, vinegar, and baking soda to make carbon dioxide.
Jay Mankita, a teaching artist and engineering enthusiast, brought his traveling MakerSpace. In small teams, students became playful engineers with all his treasures. Thank you Mr. Mankita!

The Impact of Force
