Thinking about mass and volume.

Why does a small rock sink into the water and a fully loaded gigantic aircraft carrier floats without sinking?
This morning we imagined, using LEGO BUILD TO EXPRESS, how scientists work in their labs, what questions they ask themselves when they are working...

Lego More to Math: The Snake.

Different challenges, more and more complicated. The goal is to build a snake with the same length and shape as the one shown in white on the right side of each statement. Really motivating and demanding.
The activity was carried out by first graders.

Symmetry and Lego More to Math.

In September I enjoyed much the activity that Agnieska carried out with her students in Bialystok:

 Today I share the results of the same experience with my students from Salamanca. Dziękuję bardzo, Agnieszka...

Family trees

Our students love art. Whenever they have to involve their parents in a hands-on project they create beautiful things.
This time we did not expect such amazing results. The trees children prepared are superb.

First aid - we can also help!

Our second graders have learnt how to save somebody's life before an ambulance arrives.

It is worth to remember:

1. Your safety comes first

2. Always look for an adult to help you.

3. Never hang up first when you call for help.

4. Act slowly and reasonably.

5. One day, you can save a life!
