We had a great time during our first week of 2nd grade. Using cardboard, rubber bands, a hole punch and rulers, we made Hopper Poppers! We flattened them with the ruler, and when we released it, POP! It was fun to see how high we could get them to Hop. We learned a little about circuits with ping pong balls, batteries and small light bulbs. The 2nd graders also showed what Smart Cookies they are when they solved a series of math puzzles, unlocked some boxes and found the reward (Cookies and Smarties!)
It was a great beginning to what continues to be a great year.
I teach technology to grades Preschool through 8th grade in the mornings, and 2nd grade math, science and religion in the afternoon.I love to share the ways we utilize technology to enhance our learning.
