Popsicle Stick Bridges

The students completed their last building project by working together in a group and building a bridge out of popsicle sticks.  Their bridge had to be at least 30 cm long and 10 cm wide.  They all did an exceptional job and some of the bridges were able to hold 2 or even 3 dictionaries!  Wow!

Bricks 4 Kidz

Bricks 4 Kidz came to our classroom today and we had the challenge of building a Suspension Bridge. We used our schema from our Testing and Building with Materials unit in Science, so our bridges had strong foundations. Excellent building 3L!

Musical Instruments

The students created musical instruments at home as their final project to our Hearing and Sound Unit. We enjoyed listening to different instruments and figuring out low, medium, and high pitches, as well as loud and quiet sounds. Great imaginations Grade 3’s!

Kindergarten Buddies

We enjoyed teaching Mrs. Sorensen’s morning Kindergarten class how to use the Chromebooks. We were so impressed by their ability to click and drag items using the Chromebooks’ unique mouse!

Balancing Animals

We synergized in groups to build creative, balancing animals using recycled material, hot glue, and construction paper.

Grade 3’s, your challenge is to tell me what your group did to make your animal balance. Did you use a particular shape?

Sturdy Stools

During our Building Unit in Science we built stools by folding, rolling, and taping newspaper to make cylindrical pillars. Once we had about 10 pillars we taped them together and wrapped all the pillars with 2 pieces of newspaper. We had a blast testing our stools to see if they would hold our weight or not.
