STEM Project

​First​ graders ​were introduced to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) curriculum in Mrs. Johnson's class. Our essential question for this week is: What buildings do you know and what are they made of? Students had to construct a tower that would stand using 10 pipe cleaners. At first, students thought it would be easy. Some had to redesign their tower and some didn't achieve success. We then looked at all the towers and discussed what we thought builders would do when things did not turn out correctly.
