What a crazy but successful year we had! Covid was unsuccessful at taking away the memories we made and the lessons we learned. Keep safe, keep reading, and continue to think with a "stemmy" mind all summer long!
This week we are celebrating Catholic Schools week. This year we are honoring our first responders. The fifth grade made many beautiful cards to show their appreciation!
Friday was a flex day and we celebrated national hat day! Also we spent some time experimenting with our knowledge of force and motion. We predicted if the change in mass or friction upon a toy car will change the distance.
What a better way for them to begin with a "stemmy" activity. Their goal was to design a helicopter out of 1 sheet of paper and 2 paper clips. If their helicopter spun 3 full rotations before hitting the ground, the mission was a success! This activity introduced the topics of gravity and air resistance.
