Third Grade Mystery Science – Year 2023-2024

To Our General Picture / Video Gallery

April 12, 2024

Students and Mrs. Mueller frequently utilize Mystery Science, a standard- aligned, hands-on curriculum that teaches and encourages students to think like scientists. Our focus this week was on Natural Hazards and Engineering.

Students explored the effects of natural hazards, such as tornadoes, hurricanes, and dust storms. In the activity, Design a Windproof House, students build paper house models. Then, using limited materials, students design multiple solutions that will make their houses sturdy enough to survive a wind storm, and compare the merits of their solutions. Students worked in small groups of 2-3 collecting and recording data.
