STEM Challenge: Catapults

My students had so much fun working on the last STEM challenge of the year....catapults! They did some research on catapults, and then I gave them a toilet paper tube, paint stirrer, rubber-band, and a marshmallow. I told them that their challenge was to see who could launch a marshmallow the farthest using the given items. 
This was a super easy project to put together, and the groups did a great job trying different options to create the catapult!

1st Summer Project

Hooray for SUMMER!! I actually had a great class this year, but let's be honest....I'm thrilled to be out of school for the summer! I have so many projects that I want to get started on and have already finished the first one. I bought a dresser at a garage sale a while back and couldn't wait to redo it. Here is the before and after pic:

What projects do you have lined up for the summer?

Circuits!

Electricity and magnetism might be my favorite science chapter. The students always get so excited when I tell them they are going to build their own circuit. I love seeing them work together to build a working circuit out of the materials I give them. Below are a few pictures of the circuit building!



When we are done with this unit, I love using task cards and a game of "I have, who has" to review!

Blog Designer Recommendations

I recently had coffee with a friend, and she was telling me that she would love to get into blogging. She is looking for someone to possibly design a blog for her. I had L. Paull Designs for All do my blog, but she is no longer designing blogs. I would love any recommendations of blog designers!!

Stitch Fix for Men? What?!

You all know that I am obsessed with Stitch Fix, but guess what? My husband is now too! He hates to shop as much as I do, and he got tired of me making fun of how he literally wears the same five shirts to work each week, so he decided to check out Stitch Fix for Men! Take a look at what he got!


He ended up keeping it all and has had success with the next couple of Fixes he has received as well! If you are interested in trying out Stitch Fix, I would love it if you used my referral link below!
