Science and math: "real world" applications
Electricity experimentation in 2-3 continues, as students design circuit boards and try ways to make lights really bright. Next: designing model houses and wiring them for lights and switches.
In grade 6, math students work in pairs to purchase all the materials they might need for a math classroom - including furniture. Each group has an assigned grade level and budget constraints ranging from $150 to unlimited. That's a challenge! The project involves planning, cooperation and performing operations with decimals.
