Today the seventh and eighth grade students tested their toothpick bridges. A bucket was hooked to each bridge from below, and sand was slowly added to increase the weight supported. The students designed and built their bridges from toothpicks, popsicle sticks, and glue that had assigned costs. The goal of the project was to support the most weight with the lowest construction cost.

Grade two has been learning about rocks, soil and other natural resources. The class used milk, butterscotch, and white chocolate chips to create sedimentary rock layers, melt and cool them for igneous, and then applied pressure and heat to change the rocks for metamorphic.
It was a delicious activity and a great way to review!
