Bart Brown, a mechanical engineering student at CSU became a visiting teacher in Grade 5 Science for the last two days of his winter break.  He supervised the construction of a roller coaster leading students to work together to read diagrams and build different sections precisely.  Bart taught the fifth graders that kinetic energy is energy of a moving object and that potential energy is energy that is stored in an object. This was amply demonstrated when the students watched their roller coaster in action.

 

Grade 6 students use the smartboard in Science class for the daily journals and notes.  They also use it throughout the day in a variety of ways.  In the morning, there are announcements and daily tasks posted. Classical music plays through the speakers giving a nice calm start to their day.  Students jump at the chance to go to the board to share their responses, ideas, theories and data with the rest of the class.
