Our 100th Day of School!

We had SO much FUN on our 100th day of School!  We celebrated being 100 Days SMARTER by dressing as 100 year olds, practicing couting to 100 by 1s, 5s, and 10s, playing the game Race to 100, writing about what we will be like when we are 100 and using 100 items to build things (see our 100th day STEM pictures below).  And of course we added to our dress up fun with a little technology you see your 100 year old below???

Dental Health Month

For Dental Health Month, our STEM involved the effects of soda on our teeth.  We soaked some eggs in soda for only a few hours.  We then spent some time using toothpaste and toothbrushes to clean our teeth.  We worked in small groups and each team member got two minutes to brush.  We were AMAZED at how little of the color came off.  Brushing did help but did not fix the discoloration.  It was fun - and messy! - learning!  Thanks to Dr. Miklesh and Midwest Dental for the 'dental bibs.' They came in very handy!!!
