Science in 4th grade

By Francis Carlier

We have been learning about energy transfers in 4th grade and the students modeled changes in potential and kinetic energy through the real life experience of a roller coaster. They demonstrated the Law of Conservation of Energy and enjoyed engineering their own roller coaster which required friction for the ride to end.

Californian landmarks in 4th grade

By Francis Carlier

In fourth grade, students are learning about various Californian landmarks that reveal the history of California. They have chosen a landmark to research, and they used Virtual Reality to “visit” their landmark. Students were offered the chance to start constructing their Landmark using the virtual platform of Minecraft. Students enjoyed being able to “see” their landmark via VR and are excited to complete their research to learn more about its importance.
