Principal's Monthly Message
Kindergartners have spent time learning about various community jobs and the science, math and reading skills related to each. The USU physics club came and worked with students. They visited “Old Grist Mill” to learn about the science of baking. The end product was delicious!
First Graders spent October reading about and participating in hands-on activities to learn about weather and seasons. Towards the end of January ask your 1st grader about mealworms!
Second graders at Woodruff have been busy studying the night sky! They have read many interesting texts about the moon and stars. The students participated in an experiment, using a ball and a flashlight, to explain why the moon appears to change shape and are now able to identify many phases of the moon.
Third graders have learned about heat and light and made solar ovens to see if the sun's heat would really cook their chocolates mores. These simple solar ovens made from pizza boxes were able to create a chocolaty delight creating heat more than doubling the air temperature!
Fourth graders have been researching about the water cycle. Students have been busy displaying their learning by creating a water cycle poster. They also learned about various animal habitats and engineered a diorama of the habitat.
Fifth graders experimented with creating earthquake resistant buildings. They studied about the effects of earthquakes on the earth surface and worked in teams to engineer a building that was at least 6 inches tall using toothpicks, spaghetti and marshmallows. Once finished, they placed their building on a tray of gelatin. The gelatin was shaken at different strengths to withstand different seismic waves.
