2/3 Spring Project: Zoom into Physics!

From the 2nd and 3rd grade teachers:

Hello Families!!

Our spring project will be based around physics and engineering.  Students will be learning all about physics and applying engineering and design concepts to build model roller coasters.  Annnd, we can’t study roller coasters without taking a class trip to see them in action! 🙂

We have a Donor’s Choose up online to fund a field trip to Great America to experience roller coasters in a culminating experience. This is going to be on ENGINEERING DAY at Great America (a once a year event) where the real ride engineers speak to students about how the coasters and rides work. We are hoping to get enough money for transportation and entrance into the park for all three second and third grade classrooms.  Below is a link to our Donor’s Choose in case you are able to donate a little to this special activity.

Feel free to pass it along!
Thank you,
The 2/3 teachers

Please note, we need to get this funded by April 17th to make the field trip. Thank you!
