Combs Traditional Academy fourth graders are busy at work preparing for the Sci-Tech Festival, which will be at Combs High School on March 7th from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m.
Students are focusing on animal adaptations that enable survival. Throughout the year, students have created circuits; conducted a “blubber experiment;” and modeled the water cycle. Science, technology, engineering, and math are not just limited to preparing for one event, but instead are embedded in student learning opportunities throughout the year!
As an example, science lessons have incorporated opportunities for students to learn about fractions: how to perform all operations with fractions; how to simplify fractions; and how fractions relate to decimals and percentages. Students have also been able to write strong opinion pieces using text evidence. Using a rubric, students edit, revise, and reflect on ways to improve their writing.BLOG COMMENTS POWERED BY DISQUS
