Our first grade students have been studying a unit on sound. They've discussed sound waves and how those waves spread through a room as sound is made. Today, Mr. Olson and a group of 8th grade students helped the first grade classes conduct an experiment to create a visual of those sound waves-they loved it! Shout out to Mrs. Blenck, Mrs. Olino, Mr. Olson, and Ms. Rande for collaborating on this awesome learning experience for students! If you're a parent of a first grade student, be sure to ask them what they learned in science class today!
