Looking Ahead 

Bridge Structures

We look forward to continuing our journey of forces acting upon bridge structures. The students will be designing, building and testing with forces of nature different types of bridges in the coming weeks. They will be creating these structures using recycled materials and Tinkercad computer program to design 3D bridges.

Grade 5 Exhibition

Grade 5 parents are invited to join the Grade 5 team on Tuesday, December 12th, 2017 at 8:00 a.m. to 8:25 a.m. in Ms. Baptist’s classroom to learn about the upcoming Grade 5 Exhibition and how to support your child through the process.

At home, please collect and bring in paper towel rolls, toilet paper rolls, and any egg cartons you have. We will be using these items among other tools to build bridges for our unit in December.
