STEM Lab rotation for August 7-8
Primary grades were given opportunity to explore, experiment, discuss, predict and practice using scissors to cut shapes in paper. We learned that cutting shapes into folded paper creates different patterns. Primary grade students demonstrated mastery in creating and identifying triangles, rectangles, squares, diamonds ("A diamond is also called a rhombus!"), regular and irregular shapes. Many students demonstrated kindness when encouraging and helping others practice using scissors safely.
Grades 3-6 were given modified versions of a paper loop challenge. Criteria and constraints changed by grade level. Here is the challenge given in Mr. Morris' math group.
Congratulations to the Toros in Mr. Morris' math group for conquering the STEM Challenge this rotation!
