The Gingerbread Man Design Challenge

Throughout most of the early winter, our Digital Learning Coach, Mrs. Davis, and the classroom teachers have taken part in a open minded challenge. Students, using a variety of materials, tried to help the gingerbread man cross over the water to the other side of the river. We certainly saw many interesting solutions to this problem. Take a look at some of the excited faces in the video below.

4th Grade STEAM Project

It sure feels like winter out there, but Mrs. Smith's fourth-grade students are thinking spring!
