Elements of Learning

Minnesauke Elementary School sixth-grade students in Patricia Woods’ class were given a rare opportunity to assume the identity of something famous during a recent science lesson.

As part of their science curriculum, the students researched one of the 118 elements on the periodic table. After conducting their research, they shared their newfound knowledge during a class celebration. Many students dressed as the element they selected and brought in props, including coins and thermometers, to enhance their presentations.
