Of Mice and Mazes

After discovering that civil engineers design roads, First graders reviewed the engineering design process.  They then built "roads" or mazes from plastic links and coded robotic mice to go through the maze.






Preschool STEAM

On Thursday, February 15, the preschoolers at MHES had a blast creating hippo sandwiches.  They started off reading Shel Silverstein's poem, Recipe for A Hippo Sandwich, together. Then They did a scavenger hunt around the room looking for 5 items that would fit on a slice of break.

Safer Internet Day

Today is the global celebration, Safer Internet Day.  Did you know that 45% of the global population has access to the internet.  That means that you and your students have a lot of strangers that are online with you.  While we would like to think that no one would do anything to harm a child and that nothing bad could ever happen, the truth is we have to educate our students to collaborate safely in a global environment.  This would be a great day to do your internet safety lesson!  Please see the link on the left to access the ACPS Internet Safety Portal for resources.  To find out more about the global celebration, Safer Internet Day, click on the image below.

National Frozen Yogurt Day

National Frozen Yogurt Day is observed annually on February 6th.  Frozen yogurt was first developed 1970 in the United States as a soft-serve treat produced by H.P Hood called Frogurt. Humphreys and Dannon soon followed with their own versions of the treat. Its popularity grew in the 80s, mostly due to frozen yogurts “health food” status. Ice cream manufacturers soon caught on, offering low-fat options.  Have fun celebrating with this sweet visual math challenge.  To get a copy that you can upload to your Google Classroom, email one of the elementary ITRTs, Gail Moore or Melanie Lewis.
