Since we have such a short week, we decided to mix things up a little bit in first grade and have some fun! We spent the mornings switching classrooms and doing different literacy based activities! Mrs. Smith taught about story comprehension, Mrs. Boyer presented and read about the first Thanksgiving with the students, and Mrs. Steedly planned an awesome Mayflower STEAM challenge!
Here are some pictures from the challenge. Students were given only foil to build a ship that would carry pilgrims and supplies (marshmellows and m&ms)! Students had to work cooperatively with their partner to complete their challenge!
From the way they burst back in the room to tell me about their project, I think they had fun! :) Thanks Mrs. Steedly for capturing and sharing these great pictures from the day!
