Mrs. Sirmans' Classes Construct Shelters in STEM Activity

Mrs. Sirmans' shared reading story for the past two weeks has been Tucket’s Travels by Gary Paulson. As a final activity, students had to work in groups using the design process to create shelters. This activity comes from the part in the story where the main character is forced to find shelter in the middle of nowhere for himself and children who are in his care. Like the boy in the story, the students had to use whatever materials were available. The final test was to see if their shelters would withstand high winds. The kids had a blast working together to design, create, and improve their designs.

Mrs. Kallam's Students Build Shelters for STEM Activity

Mrs. Kallam's classes worked on a STEM activity that involved building shelters for the story Tucket's Travels. Students tested their shelters to see if the shelters could withstand a windstorm. After their test, students wrote a reflection about what worked and didn't work with the construction of their shelter.

After returning home from serving in the United States Air Force, Mrs. Charlotte

Harper followed her passion of working with children by going back to school to become an early childhood educator. Mrs. Harper received her Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education from Valdosta State University. Her first eight years of teaching were in the Valdosta City School system. During that time, she continued her education to receive her Master of Science degree in Elementary Reading and Mathematics from Walden University. As native of Berrien County, she desired to teach in her home town and to have a positive impact on the children and families of the community.
