This Week at Roderick School...
Fifth Graders Visited the Museum Of Science!
Thanks to W.E.S.T. and their generous donation, all seven classes of fifth grade visited the Museum of Science this week! This provided a chance for the students to be able to apply numerous concepts they have learned in an exciting and interactive environment encouraging creativity, problem solving, and innovation. Some of the many exhibits they explored included Colossal Fossil, Natural Mysteries, Energized, Take a Closer Look, the Yawkey Gallery on the Charles River and the ever-popular Lightning! exhibit. They were also "charged" with the challenge of creating a bobsled or a trampoline. There were even Social Studies connections through the exhibit on chocolate deepening their learning about the Mayan and Aztec Civilization.

Fourth Grade Animal Fair!
On Friday, March 3, 2017, fourth grade researchers shared all that they had learned in their grade-wide World Animal Fair! It was incredible to see and hear all that they learned about the animals they studied. Our presenters did an excellent job of answering their visitors questions on the spot such as, "How does that feature help the animal to survive?" or "Why do you think the coloring of the fur changes as the animal gets older?" Students were also eager to share where they found their information and many had published reports for visitors to read to learn more! Thank you Fourth Grade for an informative afternoon! A special thank you to all of the families who made arrangements to join us in this celebration of learning!
More pics to share next week, too!
