School wide Reward and Electric Circuits

The third graders had such a busy day today.  As a school wide reward for our Starbuck program the kids celebrated with a dance party.  We enjoyed watching fifth graders teach the students a fun and energetic dance and then the kids were able to try it.

The students also had a chance to explore with circuits in science today.  They did a great job working as a team to put together a circuit and make their light bulb light up.
