Students Get Up Close to Sea Turtles

Lee Elementary second-graders enjoy learning more about sea turltes via Skype with the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital.

Fawkes suffered a devastating injury leading to a debilitating condition called "Bubble Butt Syndrome." It might sound funny, but it can be deadly for a young sea turtle like Fawkes - named by the South Caroline Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital employees after a character in the Harry Potter series. Lee Elementary second-graders could see the weights placed on the back end of Fawkes' shell during a Skype session with the aquarium. The weights, they learned, help the turtle dive to get the food he needs.

Second Graders Become Rubik's Cube Masters

Mr. Barnes' second-grade students work on their Rubik's Cube puzzles.

When Mr. Barnes' students finish an assignment early or are waiting for class to resume after a break, they often reach for their multi-colored Rubik's Cubes. "It's a way to keep their minds engaged during those short breaks they have throughout the day," said Ethan Barnes. "As a class, we researched the benefits of the Rubik's Cube puzzle and wrote a grant together ."

Skyping Puts Students at South Carolina Aquarium

Mr. Fischer's class skypes with an expert at the South Carolina Aquarium.

River otters swam around and around, gracefully gliding through the water and bobbing their heads up every few minutes to see what was going on. It was a one-of-a-kind view for Lee Elementary students as they watched the otters from the rocks high above the water enclosure at the South Carolina Aquarium. No - it wasn't a lavish field trip. Using Skype technology in Lee Elementary's Makerspace room, Mr. Fischer's second-grade class interacted with Susan Snide, a distance learning interpreter for the aquarium.

Lee Elementary Makerspace Inspires Visitors

East Grand Rapids administrators watch a demonstration of how Lee Elementary teachers use Legos in the Makerspace room to teach math lessons

Blue, green, yellow, orange and white Lego pieces were stacked in varying heights representing different fractions. At a nearby table, Little Bits were used to turn wheels and make lights go on and off demonstrating simple circuits. And later, students used their ingenuity and creativity as they tried to build the tallest tower possible using 100 Keva Planks.
Lee Elementary School's Makerspace room was in the spotlight and guests from East Grand Rapids Schools were impressed.
