Right before Fall Break, we engineered, or built, bridges. We were in groups of 2-3. We had limited supplies. Our supplies were a little more than 20 popsicle sticks, maybe 12 or 13 pipe cleaners, and about 33 q-tips. We used candy bars to measure the weight that each bridge could support. The winning bridge held 54.9 ounces, or 3.43 pounds, which was 34 candy bars.
On Monday, October 22 our second graders went to Jaker's Jack-O-Lanterns for their first field trip. The entire second grade team is thankful for the parent volunteers that helped make this field trip possible. The students had a wonderful time and all got to bring home a pumpkin!
Today we played a math review game, “Connect four”! Students used team work and their quick mental math to solve math problems. Students who solved the answer first got to put a post it note of their teams color up. The first team that connected four won! We sure do love math!!
