|The last day
of the 2018-2019 school year was a fun one! The students began the
day with an innovation project, and they ended the day with a fun end of the year celebration. The class
watched a snip from The History Channel's Men Who Built America.
They saw how Andrew Carnegie needed to innovate to solve a problem
involving the first bridge for trains across the Mississippi River.
Following that, the students took part in the marshmallow challenge.
Their task was to build the tallest tower they could using a yard of
tape, a yard of string, fifteen pieces of spaghetti and one marshmallow.
The marshmallow had to sit atop the tower. The students created their own groups and had 25 minutes to build the tower.
Following the building of the towers, the students got to take part in their end of the year celebration. They were lead through the making of dream catchers, and they took part in a book exchange. During all that time, there was pleny of food to send the Innovators off to summer with a smile on their faces. Take a look at our last day of fourth grade.
