3rd Grade Artist












The 3rd Grade learners are busy researching and analyzing various styles of art. They have been compiling their information in a mini-documentary that will be completed this spring. Be on the look out for their "movie premiere". Shown in this post are their "Surrealistic School Supply" art pieces. Students had to use our SCAMPER thinking strategy to modify a common school supply into the style of surrealism.

1st and 2nd Grade learners have been exploring potential and kinetic energy by researching and observing roller coasters.We have examined how gravity, air resistence and friction affect velocity of roller coasters and the science behind constructing a successful roller coaster. Learners used their gained knowledge to  construct their own roller coaster given certain materials.
