After School ASL Class

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on

Our after school clubs started yesterday. In Mrs. Funes’ class we are learning American Sign Language also known as ASL. Today we learned how to sign the alphabet and how to greet someone and respond. It’s exciting to see so many students excited to be learning a new language and more about the deaf community!

Electricity in 5th Grade

Submitted by sarah.ledingham on

For our electricity science unit, we made electricity game boards. Our game boards worked by touching a wire to a brad and if you answered the question correctly a tiny light bulb would light up. This worked because we had foil on the back of the game board acting as wires for our game. We used a battery as our power source, and with wires we lit up the light bulb when the player touched the correct answer with the correct question. We decorated them in different ways with different themes. Some examples are; food, Disney, cats, video games, etc.
