The task was to design an aluminum foil float that could hold multiple pennies without sinking. The students worked together through the design process and had a wonderful time! I always enjoy watching my third grade students interact with the kindergarteners. They have such patience and kindness with their young buddies.
Task: to design and build something that can be used to rescue a tiger from a moat. (Each design is required to contain two different, simple machines.) The students have been working well in teams throughout the PLTW design process. They've been learning a great deal about simple and compound machines and having fun while doing it!
Hi Third Grade Families,
Snow, record-cold temperatures, quick thaw to mild temperatures and now flood warnings and rain…..our New England weather has certainly been a wild ride so far in 2018!
In spite of these crazy weather patterns, it has been great to finally get back to a full week of school and our third grade routines. I have really missed seeing the kids on a regular schedule. This week was good for all of us.
A few things….
Important Dates in January:
The BES Student Council leaders attended an all day leadership conference at Three Rivers Community College on Thursday, January 11th. It was a great day of learning and fun! The students participated in workshops specializing in growth mindset and mindful habits- thinking and action, as well as anti-bullying interactive theater and role play. The students will now bring their new ideas and activities and share them with our BES community. These present day and future leaders make us so proud!
