Think Tank in Pictures... Part 1!

Hello all Thinkers!

   As we return from spring break, I realize that I have not updated the blog in a long time-- and that's an understatement! I guess that we have been so busy DOING that I havn't taken a moment to post here and share! So please take this blog post as a "snapshot" of the last six week and a look into what's coming next.  Captions and more pics coming sooooon!

Third Grade takes on force and motion and begins their Rice Rangers Program!

Students in 1st and 2nd grade explore ramps, slope and take on the challenge of contributing positively to a group and inspiring teamwork!

Students in 3rd grade, along with a few 2nd graders work with Casey Trees to plant 7 wonderful new native trees in the front of the building!

The morning Be Water Wise enjoys bagels ( thanks Max!) while making water conservation signs!
Below, the Be Water Wise recess group makes Water Use Detective badges!

5th Grade learns about using a the flow meter bag to determine the water efficiency of their sink faucets. From their they explore what happens to stormwater runoff in DC and  complete a service learning project by cleaning up our block. Would you believe that we filled two large trash bags on Maury's grounds alone??

More coming soon!
