9-13-2016 - Float Your Cup Challenge - Students used engineering and very limited resources to create a way for their cups of water to hang from a stable, suspended object. No two teams repeated designs...all very creative, original ideas. Great job 5th graders! Check out the gallery below!
Fifth graders are well into our novella, A Long Walk To Water, and as we discuss our characters, we are brainstorming and researching ways to solve the global water crisis.
This week (September 13th) - students will participate in a webquest that will allow them to hear from local Sudanese residents as they explain the great lengths they must go to just to retrieve dirty water.
We'll also spend some time discussing local water issues, so that we understand both local and global ramifications of not having access to clean water.
