Spring is in the air! What a relief to finally be able to go outside and enjoy this week's weather!
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.
