Test Pushdown

Building Stem Skills With Newspapers

Posted on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 at 10:15 am

STEM 2The Grundy County Herald visited with two sixth grade classes at Tracy City Elementary on Friday to explore STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) skills using the newspaper. Students used the classified pages to find a care for sale and calculate how long they would have to save to purchase the vehicle. They used cardinal directions to navigate an article, and they built a newspaper page. We would like to thank Teri Phillips and her students for welcoming us in their classroom, and Discover Together Grundy and Susan Johnson for scheduling the event.
