NORWAY — Drought Elementary School students demonstrated how to use hands-on learning to make the holidays come alive.
Students in fifth through eighth grades actively applied their mathematical knowledge of geometry and scale factor to design and create their own gingerbread houses.
Through thoughtful and careful planning, the students began the project by crafting detailed blueprints. Using precise measurements and proper application of proportional relationships, the students then made their dream house come to life.
Drought Elementary School curriculum utilizes hands-on experiences to increase student growth related to academics, creativity, problem solving, determination, collaboration and real-life skill application.
