Cherry Creek Crocs ended the day with an assembly featuring Cultures of the World. Cami Estrada & Kellon Sines, from the Lighthouse Team, highlighted different parts of the world where some of Cherry Creek’s student are from. They shared information about ethnic foods, holidays, music, language, sports, and more interesting facts. Mrs. Deardeuff shared her love for Scottish Bagpipe music with the Garden Valley Pipe Band. A Big Croc shout out to Vera Hamilton and Robert Baxter for joining Mrs. Deardeuff.
Today we kicked off Culture week at Cherry Creek. Students were invited to wear a hat or outfit from their heritage. Many students wore outfits from their native country. Thanks for showing us some of the different ways people around the world dress. Tomorrow is the Culture of America. Show your pride by wearing Red, White & Blue.
The 5th Graders in Mrs. Youngs’ class learned engineering skills by testing their ability to build a large tower. The students built these to introduce STEM skills and connected this to the Jeddah tower that is going to try to break the record of the highest building in the world. They had to develop and use models and construct explanations or arguments from evidence to erect their tower. They will also discuss engineering failures from around the world and will apply the knowledge they learned to compare to their towers… what could they have done differently?
