STACEY BOOTS

The Kindergarten students at Olympia North created an arcade this week through Kiwi Co crates. We received the John Maitland Agriculture Awareness Grant which donated money to be used toward agriculture in the classroom. Students worked in small groups and followed directions on how to create the claw. They were able to use rubber bands, screws and nuts to create the device. Next we made pom-pom figures to put in a box-like cage. Finally, students were able to learn about the arcade through the books/comics sent with the kit. They took turns trying to get the items from in the box, played Skee ball with pennies, worked through mazes and more. It definitely tested their perseverance and collaboration. This activity will be in the STEM lab for the rest of the school to enjoy. We will be looking forward to next month’s delivery of a new engineering kit.
