Class Projects

Here is a little look at what we have been working on over the last week. . . What a great way to end the school year!

We had an engineer come in and teach a lesson on physics, as well as demonstrating mousetrap cars to teach about those principals. . .

I had a student do an independent research project on butterflies and insects. We ordered butterflies to see the lifecycle, and he presented his research to the class before our release. . .

We finished up a unit on biomes of the world with research projects and dioramas. I didn't have any of the finished without kids in them, but here is an "in-process" shot.

We did a study on abstract art- here are the kids' examples!

And we experimented with dominoes to learn about structure and stability. . .

What a fun last semester! I am all packed up and back down to the little girls in first and/or second grade for next year!
