4th GRADE TAG STUDENTS

Fourth Grade TAG students are creating Marble Runs.  Their challenge is to create a run that will cause their marble to spend the longest time traveling from top to bottom of their backboard.  A lot of trial and error engineering has been taking place.

FIFTH GRADE TAG

Turrill fifth grade TAG students just wrapped up their Simple Machines project.  They started by learning what the simple machines were, what they did, and how they affected effort force when used to do a task.  Next they brainstormed and planned how they could demonstrate each machine, and how they could get their classmates to experience these machines.  They build the necessary props and gathered the tools they needed.  Then each of the three fifth grade classes were invited to take part in the stations the TAG students set up.  The TAG students did a great job of presenting and facilitating the simple machine centers.  Well done TAG team!

4th Grade TAG

The fourth grade TAG students have been researching adaptations, the special behaviors or physical changes to an animal’s body that help them survive in their environment.  These students created and presented PowerPoint projects to their class to explain this.  The TAG students also helped facilitate an activity where their classmates used adaptations and measurement to identify an assortment of animal skulls.  This was a great precursor to the fourth grade life science unit.
