Hub Pilot Program
The Hub is Moose Lake school's new electronic tracking system we received through Safe Routes to School (SHIP grant.). All students who walk or bike to school on a regular basis will received a Hub card. Students in the Hub pilot area walked to school Wednesday through Friday of this week with a "walking school bus" led by Miss McGee and accompanied by Miss Lindsay. Each day they swiped their Hub cards to register their mileage. All students who walk or bike to school on a regular basis will received a Hub card. This group of students has already discussed walking to school and home for a week in the spring!! Awesome!
Mr. Borak's Engineering Unit
Students in Mr. Borak's fourth grade science classes created popsicle bridges during an engineering unit. The students worked in groups of two or three to create a bridge that could hold 5 pounds for one minute, spanned 14 inches, and was aesthetically appealing. The students wanted to make it a mini competition. In each class one group was named champion bridge builders based on the criteria listed above. In Mr. Borak's class Samantha, Sam, and Carly took home the championship. In Mrs. Erickson's class Olivia, Brooke, and Justin were champions. All students who participated learned about the importance of engineering (planning, constructing, revising, collaboration, and reflection).
Bicyle Training Curriculum
Thanks to a S.H.I. P. grant received by Carlton County Public Health and Human Services, Moose Lake elementary students in grades 4 and 5 had the opportunity to participate in a bicycle training curriculum. Moose Lake students took part in the training during physical education classes. The training included basic hand signals, proper helmet fitting, ABC quick checks, safe braking, and rules of the road. Students had the opportunity to ride along some city streets and venture down the bike trail to demonstrate the skills they had learned.
