The school year may be coming to an end, but the Changemaking Lab is as busy as ever! Our fifth grade students are continuing to work on their cardboard sneaker designs. They are being asked to consider form and function in their work - creating a stylish pair of shoes that can withstand a series of physical challenges without buckling under the pressure. Stay tuned for more on this project!
Our eighth graders are finishing up their Job Board projects and they are incredible! This week, Emerson and Lilly presented their kinesthetic corridor design to the EC students. They built a balance beam, long jump, and sequential letter and number tiles to encourage students to build their fine and gross motor skills while also practicing their literacy and numeracy skills. Needless to say, the EC students were a little excited!
On Wednesday, Sixth graders visited Turtle Creek and Turtle Woods assisted living community to play games and reconnect with their friends. The rooms were filled with the sound of jovial conversation while the tables were covered with Scrabble, Apples to Apples, Yahtzee, and even blackjack! Our time together was altogether too short, and we are already looking forward to seeing them again in the fall! :)
