On Friday, October 16th, Kindergarten participated in their first STEM lab. Mrs. Simpson and Mrs. Williams designed two great activities that created opportunities for our students to hypothesize using prior knowledge, create a boat to hold treasure and even test out how much treasure their boat would hold. Teams were able to choose their material and design their boat. We had some great designs and were surprised at the success of the boat that was made from wax paper. We also had time to choose materials to design a sail to get a pre-made ship across the water. Since we had already made our special snack with a sail, the students were excited and designed some different sails. We tested them with wind and they moved across the water nicely. It was a great learning day!
