Looking for Some Help – iPads

In an effort to fundraise for some classroom iPads, I have joined a website called,  On this site, donors can contribute to the effort.  I am looking to purchase 4 iPad Mini’s for station work and projects.  The district only provides iPads to grades K and 1, and there are no funds available for our class.  If you can help us out, that would be great.  If you are unable to donate, perhaps you can share this link with others.  Thanks for all you do for our class!

Design Engineers in Action!

Students have been learning about the necessity of insulation for some animals to survive in the cold weather.  To see how insulation works, students designed containers to hold hot liquid jello in.  They had to make an insulation layer for a coffee mug, and we put the containers with the hot jello outside for 20 minutes.  When compared to the control with no insulation, our insulating layers made the jello retain heat with as much as difference as 27 degrees C.  image (1) image (2) image
