Several 4th and 5th grade IE groups learned about the Boston Tea Party last week and finished with a STEAM challenge making a crate to float a tea bag. A Boston Harbor was made today and crates were thrown overboard. Mrs. Garrison’s tea stayed dry the longest! Congratulations to these students in their victory!
