8th Grade Science — PBL & STEM — Conservation


007

[PBL stands for Project Based Learning. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.]

Recently, students in eighth grade were challenged with designing an educational display to teach fourth graders why it is important to conserve.  Students researched conservation issues and tips, then created models to help them teach.

The class finished the project by rotating fourth graders through each learning station.  The younger students loved it and want to do it again!

Eighth graders made impressive and creative models, ranging from Lego stations illustrating conservation techniques to a 3-D paper house and origami tree.  Other teachers and community members were invited to tour stations.  It was neat seeing the 8th graders really take ownership of their knowledge as they felt responsible to help the fourth graders understand ways they could help the environment.
