I introduced the Mini STEM Bowl competition to the 3rd grade students and we watched a short video on it. We worked through a few practice problems too. The Mini STEM Bowl is a quiz bowl style competition where teams of four students compete using buzzers to try to be the first one to get to answer questions on STEM topics. If your 3rd grade student is interested in participating, we will be taking a qualifying quiz next week during our enrichment time. We are only able to bring one team of four students to the competition at the IU13, so we need to take the quiz in order to select our team members.
Everyone worked on Postcrossing today. We worked together to create a postcard to send to Utah. The students are designing the front of the postcard, as we did with our Penguin Postcards, and they chose a few topics to include in the note on the postcard. We will finish making and writing the postcard next week.
