The first annual RES Measurement Fair was held on April 24, 2013. Fourth grade students created interactive math learning stations and then invited the entire school to participate!
The 4th graders worked in teams to run their own station and teach groups of students that attend the fair about measurement. This was a great opportunity for other students to gain exposure to different forms of measurement and have fun with some hands-on learning.
I stopped by the Measurement Fair yesterday at Randolph Elementary School and was really impressed. It shows a level of participation and work that exemplifies Project-Based Learning. I had a chance to see the end products of the older students as well as the younger students being led through the various experiences. ~ Chuck English, Director of Playful Learning and Inquiry, Science Museum of Virginia
