Fifth Graders Study Beach Erosion

Mrs. Muller’s 5th grade class wrapped up their unit on constructive and destructive forces in yesterday’s STEM Lab, performing some cool experiments!  Students focused on beach erosion, analyzing the effects of both wind and water on their “sandy beaches.”  Stations were set up to demonstrate how these effects could be changed by building sea walls, jetties, and levees.  Take a look at the slideshow below to see them in action!

3rd Graders make excavators!

Third grade students have been studying rocks, minerals, and fossils during the first quarter. As we wrap up this unit we made excavators that could be used to excavate minerals (chocolate chips) out of rocks (cookies). Super fun and amazing ideas!


4th Grade makes Weather Instruments

Fourht Graders have been studying weather this quarter and as our culminating activity, the students made weather instruments. The students made thermometers, barometers, weather vanes,and anenometers. These working weather instruments were amazing and are currently on display in the 4th grade hallway!


Fifth Grade Makes Dams

Ffith graders have been studying constructive and destructive forces.  In this study we look at human interventions and technologies.  Dams are one human intervention that are used to control flooding and have other benefits to humans.  Students designed and built working dams.  These dams had to hold back water, let water flow and stop the water from flowing.  Enjoy the slideshow below of some great dams:
