Great things happening at Calhoun School! Check out this from 4th Grade: Our science unit this month deals with forming and testing a hypothesis. Using our STEAM Bin materials, students were tasked with conducting an experiment to construct the best book holder! They had to form a hypothesis, test their structure to see how many books it would hold, and make adjustments as needed. At the end, they had to observe, “did our hypothesis match our results?” Every group approached it in a different and creative way! We are so proud of our 4th grade Minks! Engineering in their future?! Maybe so! #minkpride
Minks Pride Gear arrived today! Youth sized hats, as pictured here, are now available! New orders forms will be making their way home! Want to print the form now? Visit https://5il.co/22gxf
