Full STEM Ahead at Oxhead Road

In the early days of October, Mrs. Kelly’s 4th graders and Ms. Goldberg’s 1st graders teamed up for a yearlong STEM initiative. The classes meet once per week to collaboratively perform an experiment or STEM activity. Each 1st grader was assigned a 4th grade buddy to work with and although their experiments are the same, the work is differentiated. This is a great opportunity for our younger students to learn from their older peers and it is valuable to have the older students feel confident in sharing their STEM knowledge. By having the students work together, they are enhancing their problem solving skills, as well as, fostering the development of interacting with their peers.
