To help get the kids excited about the unit and to promote their own inquires the grade 5 team planned 3 provocations; an egg drop, a chemistry experiment with Mr. Haag, and experimenting with new design and tech. tools in the innovation lab with Ms. Chantal. Both grades are super energized and excited beginning their journeys and explorations and building their individual understandings of the central ideas.
