5th Grade Student Work Samples 
- Edible Cells LAB -
     Students created edible models of plant and animal cells using bread rounds and regular loaf bread, peanut butter and/or jelly, pretzel sticks, Twizzlers, cereal, and chocolate candy. After creating their cells, students were required identify each type of cell as well as identify each organelle and its function.  NOTE: This activity would be modified in the case of any nut allergies, however, in this particular class, there were no peanut,  tree nut, or other food allergies as verified by parent permission for participation in the activity.

Edible Cells


- Plate Tectonics Lab -
Students used graham crackers and frosting to demonstrate the interactions of divergent and convergent plate boundaries. As they created each type of boundary, students were asked to explain what was taking place and what landform was being created by each (fold mountain, rift valley, mid-ocean ridge, trench, etc.)





Camp Invention @Austin Elementary June 2017
Facilitating the kindergarten group during camp invention was so much fun!
The students exchanged rich conversation as they worked together
to assemble a circuit with a switch which set off an alarm (small buzzer).
