Saving Fred in a STEM Activity
Students in Mrs. Thomas’ class worked with partners to save Fred. In this STEM project, Fred is a worm and needs a life preserver to be safe at sea. The life preserver has been trapped under his boat (clear cup) and students can not touch Fred or the boat. They were given supplies (paper clips, gummi, worm, peach ring, plastic cup) and had to work as skilled collaborators to save Fred. Being a skilled collaborator is a key component in our UCPS Portrait of a Graduate model. Students did an amazing job of working respectfully and productively in their teams.
