4th Grade Science Fun!

Submitted by heidi.groneman on Fri, 08/27/2021 - 09:42

Rees Elementary 4th grade is studying the cause and effect relationship between the speed of an object and the energy of that object. To further our understanding, we played a game with marbles. The goal of the game was to use the right amount of speed and energy when shooting a marble to knock an opponent's marble out of bounds while keeping your own marble from going out. This game really helped us observe changes in energy as we watched the marbles collide!

Mrs. Nixon's Class Learns They Can Do Hard Things

Submitted by heidi.groneman on Fri, 08/20/2021 - 16:55

This week, Mrs. Nixon's third grade class talked about what it takes to have a class where we are kind, we help each other, and how we can do hard things. Instead of saying I can't, we say I can't do this YET, we ask for help and we work as a team. She gave the students a challenge to stack the cups without touching them with any part of their body. They could only use a rubber band and the yarn, and they had to work together. They all figured it out, and they were all excited and proud of accomplishing such a hard challenge
