STEM Rec Challenges
December 4 - 8
Smell Focus Challenge. Humans are thought to be able to distinguish a trillion unique smells. We'll learn about how our nose recognises smells, compare our sense of smell to some animal super-smellers, and then see how how many of our mystery smells the students can identify.
Engineering / Math / Art
Foxville Christmas Village. Students will design and construct their own building to be included in our FDA Christmas Village. Students will then paint and decorate their building at the art station. The village will be on display through the month of December. We are hopeful this will be an exciting and unify project for our student body. We need parents to help in the design/construction process and the painting/decorating process. Please see sign up page on facebook. Examples as follows:
Great Wall of China. One of the seven Wonders of the World, the Great Wall of China is so massive it can be seen from space. Constructed across centuries, it protected the people of China. Can you work with kids across classes to build your own Great Wall?
Conversation Jenga. This week students will be testing balancing skills by doing Conversation Jenga in literacy! It's Jenga but with a literacy twist, so you have to answer questions as you play!
