3rd grade poetry featured @ Boonton museum

6th graders Become the teacher
The 6th grade class had a unique opportunity where they were able to become the teachers for the period. In enrichment class, the student's developed a lesson that they learned during the school year. The student's researched their topics, developed a hands on lesson plan and presented it to their classmates. Many students enjoyed the opportunity to take on a leadership role in the classroom, while others were intrigued by the lessons that were presented to them by their classmates.
STEM Class focuses on Product design
The 6th grade technology students were working on a STEM challenge in which they had to construct a desk and chair that had to hold books. Students brainstormed, drew up, constructed and modified designs to meet the challenge. In doing so they were able to understand the design process, take measurements, use creative design, and improve products that could be used in actual design.
