In preparation for the International Day of Peace this Thursday, the 6th grade class partnered with the 1st grade class to make pinwheels! These pinwheels will be displayed around our SJS campus- be sure to keep an eye out for them!
So far this year, the 8th graders have been discussing various problem-solving methods, including both the scientific method and the engineering design cycle. Today, as part of a hands-on mini project bringing the design cycle to life, the students were challenged to create a pyramid out of the cups without touching the cups. They were given a series of items to use to assist in moving the cups. The other caveat was that every member of the team had to be involved in the moving of the cups. It took some figuring, but eventually, everyone got it!
It’s been a great first couple of days here with the new 6th grade class! We’re excited to see what the year has in store for us!!
