Mrs. Murphy's 4th grade students used the engineering design process to create a hot air balloon that will fly following assigned criteria. During our next class, students will build and test their designs!

4th Grade Target - 8/29/16

Ms. Nixon's 4th graders participated in a “Tower Building” activity that required them to use the qualities of an effective team player: active listening, cooperation, and treating others with respect. 

I was impressed by how well most teams worked together to replicate their towers!

1st Grade Target - 9/6/16

The first grade Target students enjoyed working in groups to design and build bird houses using exactly 30 popsicle sticks. Each design was thoughtful and unique! These sweet students love birds just as much as Leonardo da Vinci does in Monday with a Mad Genius.
