Mrs. Julie Cain’s first grade class joined forces with Mrs. Meghan Hritz’s Kindergarten class for their first STEM project of the year. Students worked with a partner from the other class to create a pom-pom slingshot. Once they had pom-poms flying in the classroom, students measured how far they could make their pom-poms go. There was a lot of thinking (“I have an idea”), trial and error, revising plans, and comparing strategies. BTW – Mrs. Cain is Mrs. Hritz’s mother!
