Kindergarten Zoo Field Trip

Posted May 27th, 2016 by Susan Nottoli

The kindergarteners were researching different types of animal within informational text, with in those texts students learned about habitats, adapatations, living and non-living things.  The students went on a field trip to the Brookfield Zoo to make connections to real life animals. They explored animals in their natural surroundings. The connection allowed students to have a better understanding of the world around them and how they can positively impact animals and their environment

My class and I went to the Adler planetarium for a field trip. We saw an I-max movie.it was really informational. We saw planets (plastic planets, not real).we also saw an asteroid full of iron from space, and we even got to touch the asteroid. We ate lunch outside as well. We saw a beautiful bay. It was also sparkling because of the Sun. We had lots of fun.

As highlighted on the WHVR news broadcast this morning…..

Guido Daniele is an award-winning artist from Italy. In 1990 he began to experiment with hand painting. By having his models move their hands into specific positions, he could create incredibly realistic looking animals.  He says “Seeing hands transformed into animals, is something that surely fascinates people.” To see more of his incredible hand art, check out the Hoover School website for information about his website! www.guidodaniele.com.

Ozbots in Mr Schaupp’s 3rd Grade Class

Posted May 19th, 2016 by Susan Nottoli

Students in Mr. Schaupp’s class teamed up with engineers from Capital One to program miniature robots called Ozobots.  These robots are about the size of a golf ball and have the ability to sense colors.  When the robots sense a certain pattern of colors, they can do tricks like turn right, turn left, turbo boost, spin around, look both ways, and zig zag.  The children had to help the robots successfully navigate their way through various mazes using color codes.  Towards the end, the students were creating their own maps on paper and iPads to see if the Ozobots would perform the way they expected.  It was a wonderful experience for the students as they worked alongside engineers and were introduced to early software programming and robotics.
