Continuing their focus on STEM this month, Mrs. Lamatina’s class completed a second challenge where they had to create an invention that could separate marshmallows and jelly beans quickly, efficiently, and without touching the candy. Students planned, selected materials, and worked in teams to build their creations.
The first grade students made Irish soda bread in celebration of St. Patricks’s Day! They learned how to follow a recipe by reading the ingredients and directions. Next, they measured each ingredient and worked together to mix it. When the students returned to class, they wrote and illustrated how to make Irish soda bread. Finally, the students enjoyed their delicious breads at snack time.
