In 2nd grade we are learning the properties of matter. Sometimes matter is soft, stiff, or water absorbent. Our students were ‘stranded on an island’ and needed to make a hat that could absorb sweat and keep the sun off. But they only had the packaging from their lunch. Paper towels to absorb the sweat. More stuff material for the shade. They did an awesome job!
This week kindergarteners are getting an introduction to forces and motions talking about terms like push and pull. A science outreach program called Discovery Gateway came to Meadow Brook to teach more about this concept. Students were able to investigate and demonstrate their learning by doing hands on activities.
