Drew Central fourth grade students learned that their are many challenges when reading a technical schematic diagram.  Students working with a partner were given the task to build a toy Bionicle.  None of the Bionicles were the same.  Students were required to build the toy Bionicle following a step process and were not given a picture of what was being built.  This project gave students the opportunity to practice critical thinking, team building, and perseverance skills.

Drew Central fourth graders eagerly took on the Christmas STEM Challenge “Candy Cane Calamity”.  STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math.  Students worked in teams and designed and built a way to safely “mail” two candy canes in one paper bag package without breakage.  Students were required to follow criteria and constraints. Once the packages were complete, students weighed them in grams and used a grams to ounces converter website.  Next, they used Chromebooks and researched FedEx, USPS, etc. rates to mail their packages to Santa at the North Pole aka Geographic North Pole or Terrestrial North Pole.   (more…)

Drew Central 4th Graders Participate In 2015 One Hour Of Code Event

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

e2zn0gk7 copyDrew Central fourth graders participated in the 2015 One Hour of Code which is a one-hour activity designed for students of all ages.  

The largest learning event in history kicks off during Computer Science Education Week, December 7-13.  The goal was to have a global movement with millions of students from around the world learning about coding at the same time. Students can choose from a variety of self-guided tutorials, for kindergarten and up.  Once students see what they create right before their eyes, they’re empowered to keep going.  Why computer science?  Every 21st-century student should have the opportunity to take part in creating technology that’s changing the world.  The basics help nurture creativity and problem-solving skills, and prepare students for any future career.  By exposing both girls and boys to fundamental computing concepts on a level playing field, we can inspire today’s generation of students to build technology.

Drew Central Fourth Graders Learn About “Cephalopods: The Jet Set”

Monday, May 5th, 2014

DSC00174Drew Central fourth grade students in Eva Arrington’s class learned about “Cephalopods: The Jet Set.” Students learned to classify by kingdom, phylum, and class. They worked with their lab partner and researched the four main types of cephalopods: octopus, squid, cuttlefish, and nautilus. Cephalopod means head and feet. Cephalopods do not have a torso.

The Distance Learning program at Drew Central Elementary in conjunction with the Alaska Sealife Center in Seward, Alaska guided students on dissecting squid. Students discovered the ink sac which squids use to confuse their enemies. They located the eyes, mouth, two tentacles, pen, etc. Students looked for the reproductive system to determine if their squid was a male or female. Another discovery was that squids have bilateral symmetry.
