The Fourth Graders have been reading Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. On Friday, the students participated in a STEAM activity based on the book.The students were given boxes with mystery items inside. In groups, they worked together to try to figure out what was in each box based on what they heard and felt. Students wrote their hypotheses down. Then the objects were revealed. The students used their observation skills to accurately guess many of the items.The activity allowed students to work on observation and communication skills while also promoting kindness and teamwork.
