On Thursday, March 2, 2017, New Town Elementary Hawks celebrated Read Across America Day by completing activities such as author studies, read-a-thons, and dressing as characters from Dr. Seuss books. Fourth grade Hawks participated in a STEM activity that integrated their animal adaptations science unit, Dr. Seuss literature, and engineering (building).
The fifth graders have been working in collaborative groups during our science units. We finished “Matter and Energy“ unit and are currently studying “Weather. “ Students work in groups with their peers to complete labs. They first have to write a hypothesis; they then work together to follow the steps of the lab, investigate, and then determine the outcome.
