Olympic Science in 3rd Grade
Leading up to the Olympics third graders in Miss Hennessey’s third grade class are taking a break from building rockets to try out some Olympic STEM challenges. First up, using what we learned about center of gravity create a speed skater out of pipe cleaners that can stand! Here are some of our *unique* creations. Third graders are also connecting to the project in writing! Our focus topic is the Winter Olympics but students got to pick which mode of writing (persuassive, informative, or narrative) and which sport/athlete they wanted to write about!
