Field Trip: Neighborhood House

Our next trip to Neighborhood House (for the second group) will be this Tuesday, November 3rd! There are only a couple of students who have not turned in a waiver yet, so I'll be contacting them individually to make sure they are able to come on the trip and participate.

Space Project

The fifth graders are designing and constructing models of space projects to present in Science Lab on Tuesday, November 17th. The projects are to be made at home using materials found in the home. Please do not go out and spend money on this project. Lego pieces and similar toys can be used as part of the project if the design is original. No pre-made projects. The projects should be small enough to fit on a desk top. Ideas may include but are not limited to: A model of a space station, a device to help astronauts eat/drink/work in space, a space suit, a spacecraft, robot/rover with a specific purpose, a tool to use in space, a space colony or biosphere, design a sport to play in space, etc. Please direct any questions to Mr. Riedl or Mrs. Swain. Have fun inventing!
