Afternoons Full of STEM

Posted on Updated on

Room D4 is deep into geometric work with students taking their understanding of points, lines, rays, and angle measures and applying this knowledge to properties of triangles. Quiz your kid by drawing a triangle and seeing if they can identify what kind it is. Push beyond naming to see if they can explain why types of angles it has and if the triangle has lines of symmetry.

Students also started their second investigation of energy by focusing on magnetism. Our introduction to this work started by identifying what would and would not stick to a magnet. Ultimately, students learned that objects with iron will stick to a magnet.
