Lucerne Valley Elementary School was abuzz with activities last week with students of all ages getting into the action.
For their Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) activity, kindergartens created “apple boats” with students creating their aquatic crafts, testing their buoyancy, and making adjustments to their designs.
Second-graders played the role of “community helpers” with students dressed up in a variety of uniforms while making their presentations. There were doctors, police officers, veterinarians, firefighters and more.
In third grade, students created landform dioramas. Essentially a creation on a flat cardboard surface, or inside a shoebox or something similar, dioramas scenes are made of everyday material such as aluminum foil, popsicle sticks, cardboard toilet paper tubes, toothpicks and the like. Lucerne Valley students showcased landforms that were both close by and far away.
In 6th grade, Mr. Marty Brander, an advisor with Ameriprise Financial, came to talk to students about his job and the importance of mathematics. Mr. Brander’s presentation dovetailed into the students’ studies of decimals this week.
As busy as the Eagles were this week, the students are just getting started.
