The Caribou Crafters Club starts its second session Tuesday. The club meets from 2:45 to 4:15 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays and is open to students in fourth through sixth grades. Participants will do lots of crafts, including tye dying, paper making, beading and making friendship bracelets. Permission slips are available in the office.
Guten Tag from Mr. Daniels' class. Students have learned colors and numbers in German and are working on a song called "Bruder Jakob." They are making gliders in class to help understand the principles of flight (thrust, drag, lift and weight). They will have a glide-off and calculate each glider's glide ratio. This project is to celebrate a century of flight.
First-graders invented their own machines to help make their work easier. The students wrote about their machines for their books. On Thursday, they had machine centers, where they took machines apart and built different machines. In math, they sorted, counted and recorded pattern blocks to cover a design, practiced adding two to a number, and compared and ordered objects by length.
