They then choose a topic that interested them. The next step was to research their topics. Each group then created a video to educate people about their topics. Here are the amazing videos the students created! https://youtube.com/playlist?list=PL8v687695_TGcEU1kECnyzYEwDAAIXNUn

Second graders have been studying Holidays Around The World. One of the countries that we have been visiting this week is Germany. We learned the tradition of the Christmas tree or Tannenbaum comes from Germany. Today, students completed a STEM assignment where they needed to work together to create a tool that they could use to stack Solo cups in the shape of a Christmas tree. They were given paper, pipe cleaners, and rubber bands. They had 7 minutes to create their tool and 10 minutes to build their trees.

These third graders had an amazing debate today. As we continue to work on our Global Ambassador project, we watched all the videos students created on their projects. The students voted for two projects to look more into. The two groups then debated why the class should pick their topic. They debated over 20 minutes with so many great points. #NHtribe
