Second Grade Volcano Project

Our class recently completed our volcano unit. We not only studied about volcanoes, we constructed our own, and erupted them using vinegar and baking soda.  So much fun!

1st and 2nd Grade Picasso Faces

We recently completed our winter art block. Here are a few examples of our Picasso faces. I am always impressed with the level of work 1st and 2nd grade students can create!

Community Time Engineered Marble Tracks

At Camas Ridge Community School we have a very unique class. Four times per week 1st - 5th grade students work together during our 'Community Time' block. Recently the room 13 community class completed a STEM activity. We designed and created our own marble tracks. Students worked in teams of two or three children from different grade levels to create a marble track. Then teams had to work together to engineer their individual tracks to work with tracks from other teams.  Below is the result!
