Today, the Grade Ones participated in their first STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) challenge.
It was so interesting to hear the words of encouragement the students gave each other as well as to see how to see how they helped one another to persevere through this challenge. The room was abuzz with excitement the whole time!
During the challenge, some interesting learning took place as Mia noticed that our timer had a coloured visual (red circle) that helped us understand how much of our time we had used and how much was left.
After, Asher wondered if we could reach from one side of the room to the other if we connected all the chains together. We worked as a class to answer his inquiry.
We plan to do one STEM challenge each week for the rest of the year. Stay tuned for more excitement!
