Pre-K Halloween STEM Project
The students learned the “5 Little Pumpkins” rhyme and then were presented a challenge. They were given “5 Little Pumpkins” (orange ping pong balls) that needed to balance on a gate. They were only allowed to use the blocks from our blocks center to build the gate. The students worked in groups to design and then build their gates. They all were successful in their builds!
STEM Pumpkin Drop
St. Ambrose First, Second, and Third Grade students used STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills to create packages that would protect their pumpkins when dropped. Last Thursday, before their Halloween parties, they tested it out by dropping the packages from the gym steps to the pavement below. The students then unwrapped the package to see how the pumpkins fared. They recorded the results and celebrated their success.
After the drop, the students examined their packages and pumpkins.
Trunk or Treat
Friday evening St. Ambrose families gathered on the school parking lot for Trunk or Treat. Everyone had a fantastic time and left with plenty of treats. Congrats to the Moeser family for the “Best Trunk.” The first place costume contest winner is Jess Hamilton. The second place winner is Cecilia Hines. A big thank you to Kurtis Hall for donating his time and the photo booth. It was a great addition to Trunk or Treat!
