Date Fun!
As I was writing my 5 for Friday I said… oh it’s 5/15/15...51515… it reads the same backwards…. my sassy partner Julie makes me aware that it's the same all week!  
5/16/15… 51615… Get it?  I love numbers, so this was fun for me.   :)

The MACUL (Michigan Association of Computer Users) offered a grant for a technlogy related project.  We were very excited to apply for this grant as it is a great opportunity to continue creating collaboration labs for our students.  One of the things we in our collaborations labs are STEM challenges.  We call these labs challenges “Tinker Time.”  Our labs are filled filled with student centered STEM challenges.  This school year we have already started implementing STEM based challenges but we are quickly realizing we do not have the necessary technology resources to keep up with our digital natives.  

We need our students to have technology resources to be successful during “Tinker Time”.  We are currently transforming our classrooms into vibrant, collaborative labs, where our students can actively work together to make content-specific products, invent designs, and process and think up new ideas.

We spent two weeks learning about boats.  This encompassed a whole lot of learning!  
Floating, sinking, budget planning, engineering, capacity, weight, different properties of different materials, record keeping, and so much more.
