4th grade walked to the park and experienced different activities from the pioneers. They learned how to play stick pull, make a doll, sew on a button, weave, tall tales how to hammer in a nail, and how to make a buzz saw. Then they walked back to the school to learn how to line dance and make ice cream.
Our fourth graders in DLI had a great time at their track meet a couple weeks ago.
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.
