  • Wonder Wednesdays in the Library
    Mrs. Blanchard, West Salem's Librarian, implemented Wonder Wednesdays so students can stretch their minds in the MakerSpace Lab.  Here are a few construction activities from today!

  • MakerSpace in Action!
    West Salem's librarian, Mrs. Blanchard, has been taking the students to the MakerSpace room every Wednesday.  This is a place for students to explore building things, collaborating with others, discovering new ideas, and so much more.  The focus of the lesson today was Simple Machines.  Students were given materials and asked to create something that included a simple machine.  These two second grade girls from Mrs. Mann's class came up with the machine in the picture below...which includes a wheel and axle!
