This year's wax museum was amazing. Fifth-grade students learned about the presidents of the United States of America. Each student dressed up as a president or president's wife and gave a speech highlighting important events and facts about their assigned president. All classes and parents were invited to attend one of their performances. It was a great experience for all!

Making Flashlights

Submitted by kalani.reed on Tue, 02/05/2019 - 13:28

Students in Mrs. Murphy's class have been learning about electricity. They have talked about positive and negative charges in static and current electricity. To learn in a hands-on way, the students created a flashlight on a craft stick using a mini LED light, watch battery, binder clips, and some copper wire/tape. Students were challenged as they worked to make sure that the batteries were placed on the correct side of the charge which would then power their lights. The students had lots of fun once they got their lights working!
