Fourth Graders Tell Many An Ancient Tale

Last Thursday was the fourth grade’s annual Greek Storytelling Festival. Students retold ancient tales and toured their guests through a classroom museum. The museum included architectural marvels, the Hall of the Gods, ceramic relief tiles, and more! The festival is truly a collaborative effort. Project work was supported by and completed in a variety of classes including science, French, art, social studies, theater arts, technology, physical education, library, and writing. We had a beautiful day that started with a deer (Artemis, perhaps) running across the field where we were gathered. Click here to see a photo gallery of the event.

Fifth Graders Design and Create Assistive Devices

For the past several weeks, fifth graders have been collaborating in partnerships and teams to create 3D-printed “assistive devices” for people who are challenged by everyday tasks. From devices to help access technology and open cabinets, to tools to help focus and stimulate our brains, fifth graders have worn many hats in science class this spring. Using research and engineering skills, students are well on their way to producing prototype devices that will be analyzed, refined, and redesigned to be as helpful as possible.
