Standard 10

Students demonstrate their learning through performance-based assessments and have opportunities to develop self-assessment and self-monitoring skills.
Concept 1 - Students engage in STEM-specific performance assessments that provide opportunities for public demonstrations of learning.
Concept 2 - Students engage in goal-setting, formative self-assessment, and reflections on learning.

The students were working on making good choices and school rules. They read, The Recess Queen and discussed safety rules on the playground. Then, the students worked together to create a recess slide using slit pool noodles and blocks. Last, the students used various objects to test their slides. 


The second graders explored severe weather elements by experimenting with static electricity to emulate thunder and lightning. The students created a model of a tornado and created rain clouds and hurricanes through various art mediums. This was all part of the Weather Unit.

The third grade classes created Native American villages as part of their study of South Carolina history. They used what they learned about the South Carolina Native American tribes to recreate a habitat.

The class worked collaboratively in order to complete the challenge of creating the longest paper chain. There were stipulations that were put in place in order to encourage the students to create a plan and think critically about the best way to solve this problem. The students could only use one sheet of paper and had 30 minutes to complete the challenge.
