Mrs. Liechty's first grade class did some experiments with balloons! We did the spinning penny experiment, the bending water experiment, and inflating a balloon with baking soda and vinegar. Then we conducted a STEM project, in, groups, using only arn, a straw, a balloon, and a piece of take. The object was to get the balloon from one side of the room to the other only using those items. First, they planned what they were going to try. Then, they executed their plan. It was so much fun!
Mrs. Herrmann’s class did a STEM activity where the students made launchers to launch their army men. The goal was to see which one could travel the farthest. They had to do different trials and change their designs to get it the best it could be. Then we launched them and measured outside.
Westside's 6th graders had the opportunity to walk to the Springville library for a tour of the teen library. They were shown all of the great teen activities available during the summer. After the library tour they went across the street to the park and ate lunch. It was beautiful weather and they enjoyed the day. Thank you Springville Library for having us and being so welcoming!
