S.T.E.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math! Students recently were given a challenge to create a parachute for Santa because his sleigh had broken down! Students could use only certain materials and had to make a blueprint and build a parachute in a certain amount of time. We had a few crash landings and got hung up on some "trees" here and there, but students were very engaged and creative. Next week, our challenge will be to build the tallest shelf for an "elf on the shelf."

HALLOWEEN AFTERNOON, 4TH GRADERS ROTATED THROUGH LEARNING ACTIVITY STATIONS IN THE THREE 4TH GRADE ROOMS. HERE ARE STUDENTS IN MY ROOM LEARNING ABOUT DRY ICE! WE TALKED ABOUT DRY ICE BEING FROZEN CARBON DIOXIDE--109 DEGREES BELOW ZERO--AND HOW DRY ICE GOES FROM A SOLID TO A GAS IN A PROCESS CALLED SUBLIMATION.

One of the unique things about studying Nebraska history is recognizing that our ancestors & families all came to Nebraska from many different places all over the world. Recently we talked about this and identified Nebraska cities on the map that have ethnic festivals celebrating different cultures. We learned about Oktoberfest and the German culture in particular. The best part was making pretzels from scratch! We are amazing pretzel-makers--they were hot and delicious!

Here we are folding the flag - We say the Pledge of Allegiance outside in the mornings, but two days a week, we do it again in the classroom and the flag holder and folder practice folding the flag for their job for the week.
Students have been working hard on creating a slide show presentation to share with the class about the different land biomes in our environment! Each group has a different biome. We hope to share the presentations next week.
