Here is another sampling of the wonderful enrichment activities that take place in the classroom and during our Friday E-slot at LME.
Mrs. Rung’s 2nd grade class: Today, students explored the school grounds and found a just right magic wand. We decorated our wands and made them magical! Next, we learned a magic floating cup trick. The children are quite impressive. They are so excited about the tricks they have learned so far and the wands they made that one student suggested making a magic box to store all of their tools of their new trade. That will be next week’s project!
Mrs. Wheeler’s 4th grade class: Over the course of the last four weeks, Wheeler's Wranglers have researched a famous American of his/her choice using the Independent Investigation Model. A variety of products have been created: posters, dioramas, models, power points, paintings, and figurines. Students will share their products and what they have discovered about their person with the class next week.
Mrs. Myrick’s 5th grade class: The Myrick Mustangs listened to Latin music and learned a little about Mexico. They were then given 3 ingredients: flour tortillas, salsa, and cream cheese. Each group was responsible for making their own recipe! The Mustangs created many different dishes using only 3 ingredients!
