All classes in Denton Avenue are moving onto Module 2 in their PLTW modules. But first, we celebrate Grade 2's final Module 1 Contest. Their unit: Properties of Matter. The students discovered that Angela, Milo, and Suzi were heading off to a soccer game. Angela brought the ice pops but forgot the cooler. Now the friends (with help from Grade 2 students) have to design a cooler that will keep the ice pops frozen.
After learning about changes in matter and insulators and conductors of heat, the children built their prototypes and held a grade wide contest to see whose ice pop would stay frozen the longest. All of them had a great time showing off their designs.
