Kitchen Bouquets

Our class took on the Kitchen Bouquet project with enthusiasm and leadership.  Each Hogwart's House created many bouquets.  Thank you to the parents who came in and helped us put them together.  We were able to deliver 140 Kitchen Bouquets from the Lower School to Bridging!  We learned about the amazing scope of the Bridging Project and toured the large warehouse!

Welcome Ms. Koh!

Welcome, Ms. Koh!

We were so honored to have DaLin Koh spend ten days with us.  She taught us so much about South Korea - the culture, the geography, and, of course, the Pyeong Chang Winter Olympics.  Ms. Koh wrote VIP letters to two students and even gave a VIP presentation herself!  We were happy to send a book of letters back to South Korea with her.

Our study of Energy continues as we move to an understanding of Electricity.  We visited the Bakken museum, learned about those who wondered and explored theories of electricity.  We toured the museum, had several hands-on activities, and even had some "hair-raising" experiences!

Back at school, we studied the components of the atom (nucleus, protons, neutrons, and electrons). We learned that all elements are made up of a combination of atoms.  We studied the Periodic Table and finally went out to the playground and made our own model.  Will explains it quite well in this video. 

We began our S.T.E.AM. semester on Friday! Our first task was to create a "Squishy Circuit".  We learned about open and closed circuits as well as conductors and insulators.

We are going to link our STEAM investigations with an online program called Science Buddies.  This website allows us to share content as well as assess student understanding through quizzes and open-ended questions and comments. Science Buddies is linked to our Google Classroom for seamless integration of our lab experiences and our classroom.
