Fourth-grade students at East Quogue Elementary School recently participated in an engaging assortment of hands-on activities exploring electricity. During their study, students created series and parallel circuits, tested various materials to determine if they conduct electricity and made circuit boards. Concluding the activities, students applied their knowledge by creating quiz boards to test their classmates on European explorers.
In addition, school librarian Mandy Abbatiello recently launched the East Quogue Elementary School coding program, KidOYO, with intermediate students.
Second-grade students in Mrs. Palumbo’s class recently read the book “Ishi: Simple Tips from a Solid Friend,” by Akiko Yabuki. The book shares the story of a little rock that chooses happiness in life. The students then picked their very own rocks and personalized them with a face, name and birthday. Through the activity students learned about the importance of choosing happiness, sharing happiness and enjoying their happiness.
Recently, students throughout the East Quogue Elementary School have participated in several exciting lessons and activities that support curriculum concepts in an engaging way.
Second-grade students in Marrisa Thompson’s class worked alongside fifth-graders to complete the Marshmallow Tower Challenge. Working together, the student groups attempted to design and construct the tallest tower. In another activity, student teacher Allison Iovino helped strengthen second-graders’ math skills in Susan Masera’s class playing the “I have, who has” game using listening skills and quick knowledge of addition facts to 20.
Additionally, Masera’s students used their knowledge of properties of matter to create edible turkeys with their STEAM buddies.
