The children then displayed their traps in their classrooms and went on tour throughout the 2nd grade pod to view one another’s creations!
Preston Hanisch, Jayarein Touch, Kyle Cramer, Kara McMullen, Kaitlyn Wolf, Madelyn Hammon, Luke Millward, and Owen Magee attended the K’nex Challenge hosted by the Bucks County IU 22 on March 8, 2019. The challenge preparation began in January as they had to create a machine that could move 3 objects at least 6 inches across a table. A “crane” had to pick up the object, move it 6 inches and set it back down. The machine was encouraged to be environmentally friendly. Madelyn Hammon and Katie Wolf chose to use solar power and Preston, Jarayein, Kyle, Kara, Owen and Luke chose to use battery-operated motors to power their machines. This was the first time Tawanka has attended the K’nex Challenge and we competed against 64 teams. They utilized every weekly minute during K’nex Club, class and recess to build the best machine to meet the challenge requirements. Their hard work paid off as both teams were nominated for at least one award. Kaitlyn Wolf and Madelyn Hammon brought home the Best Teamwork for Tawanka. As a group, we learned how important it is to work together and have fun!!
Mrs. Ross's Second Grade class and Mrs. Gartenmayer's 4th Grade class met with their buddies to work on a fun spring project using their 1 to 1 technology. Using all the words to describe spring, they created a word art picture. They really enjoyed learning how to use this neat website. The two classes will meet again next to work to complete their project and print their pictures.
