STEAM with the 4th grade

We have been having so much fun with the 4th grade! About a week ago, I read Junkyard Wonders by Patricia Polacco to the class. For those of you unfamiliar with the story, it is a story based on the author’s real childhood where she was placed in a class at a new school referred to as “The Junkyard”. This class is a “special needs” class, and turns out to be filled with misfit kids, who are all “genius” in their own way. A junkyard can be a place filled with wonderful possibilities and our students found that out  by using objects from our STEAMROLLERS and a few other random items to create their own airplanes to go along with the story. More to come!
