Learning, Play, Fun- STEM ACTIVITES! Students in the Frog and Critter classes had fun becoming engineers and building obstacles today! It was Mazes for Marbles! First they had to design the maze and draw out their blueprint. Then they could use a variety of materials to put their blueprint to life! Students built their structures with plates, straws, pipe cleaners, paper, tape, and tooth picks. Finally, it was time to put their design work to the test- with lots of marbles!

Linoleum Block Printing! MNCS Elementary students recently worked on designing and carving their linoleum prints. They have been learning about a variety of printmaking methods and are expanding on this knowledge, putting it into action! The first step involves choosing a design and creating it, something unique and special to them! The second step is carving their design and becoming familiar with the different carving tools-how each provides a different result of detail. Lastly, students will soon be using their hand-crafted linoleum blocks to make prints with ink/paint. What a fun process and beautifully crafted art!
