This week during recess something spectacular happened! The first graders found long boards and combined them with the swings to create thrilling, dynamic seesaws. Watching them experiment with how to make these new toys work was a treat. Great questions spilled out of the first grade tinkerers: Where should we balance the board? Where should we each stand to make this work? Can we add different numbers of people to each side? Can we swing and seesaw at the same time?
In the science lab, Valley scientists are encouraged to practice curiosity and ask questions. Students learn that science is all about asking questions and then designing experiments and conducting research to answer those questions.
Our science lab is bustling with the excitement of a new year! Students are exploring the lab and making it their own by adding to our list of field notes (animals and plants that Valley students observe in the wild) and putting questions on our “I wonder…” wall.
