Carpenter's kindergarten students have spent two weeks learning about forces of motion with pushes and pulls. Through a variety of hands on centers, students enjoyed learning how to push and pull. One station students really enjoyed was GoldieBlox, where we read a story and found a way to use wheels, axles and a ribbon to create pushes and pulls! Students also really enjoyed learning about collisions and got to explore how collisions work with dominos. Students loved seeing slo-motion video of their domino creations pushing into each other to knock each other down!
This is my tenth year teaching and my second with Ann Arbor Public Schools. I spent the first eight years of my teaching career as a K-8 technology teacher. I joined AAPS last year as a Media Specialist and I am thrilled to be a part of PLTW this year! In my spare time I enjoy going to the gym, baking and spending time with family and friends!
