In Science, we participated in a STEM Challenge. For this challenge, we had to create a bird beak out of clay. We had to get creative because our bird had to survive in four different habitats. During the challenge, we brainstormed different ways that we could create our beaks. As a class we researched different bird beaks and then determined the type of beak we wanted. We were very excited while doing this challenge.
We are looking forward to seeing all of you next week. Attached to the bottom of this letter are the links to the back to school letter for all grades. Supply lists and summer assignments are listed under the class your child will be attending in September.
See you soon!!
