Kindergarten Class Conducts STEM Activity

STEM Activity

Kindergarten students at Washington Drive Primary School in Mrs. Sacks and Mrs. Ortiz’s class recently experimented with what would happen if a “gingerbread baby” fell into a river (a bin filled with water). The students followed the Scientific Method forming a hypothesis, making observations and recording the results. The class came up with many different adjectives as to what would happen and completed a STEM activity to try and make sure the “gingerbread baby” would not fall into the river again, while using marshmallows and toothpicks. The students worked together to come up with a way to create a bridge for the “gingerbread baby”. They problem solved and had various discussions on how to construct their bridge. They then tested their ideas and shared their bridge with the class.
