Week of May 11th

May 10th, 2020 / / categories: Class News /

Hi Boys and Girls! Hope everyone had fun exploring nature last week on your scavenger hunts! I loved all the pictures that were sent to me… please keep sharing your amazing work!

This week I have some fun STEM challenges for you! There are 3 challenges, but you get to choose the one you would like to do. Look at all 3 choices and think about what materials you have at home and which would be best for you. Challenge #1 and #2 are for any grade level. Challenge #3 is more difficult and recommended for upper grades (3rd, 4rth, and 5th), but younger siblings can work with older siblings to complete this. Please scroll down to find the STEM challenges, choose one to do and follow the directions. Have fun!

*****Remember to share your work by sending me a picture or video to your teacher’s class dojo, google classroom, or email me at gruczl@dearbornschools.org
