👷‍♀️👷 SOWAMS SCHOOL THIRD GRADERS DESIGN DREAM HOUSES: Last week, Sowams School third graders in Mrs. Adamson's class finished their math module on area by designing their own dream houses! This deep learning activity transformed students into junior architects and construction workers applying knowledge about area to create the house of their dreams. Students learned that math - area, in particular - is an important part of our everyday lives and even had the opportunity to discuss different careers, like construction, that use math on a regular basis. Thanks, Mrs. Adamson, for making this unit a "blast"! 🦺
