Fourth Grade

fourth grade

Fourth graders have been working in teams to build STEM projects using various materials.  Their first challenge was to create the tallest snowman, using only toothpicks and marshmallows.  Next, the children had to design a catapult to launch a snowball using spoons and rubber bands.  Finally, they constructed a sled made of cardboard, pipe cleaners, straws, and one yard of tape.  Throughout all of these projects, the children learned that designing and testing are the most important parts of the engineering process.  Currently, the children are coding with Dash Robot to prepare themselves for the Dash Winter Olympics.
