Fourth-Graders Have Fun While Learning About Science (Date Posted 5/24/2019)
This week, Ms. Water’s 4th-grade science class was privileged to watch Granite Construction pour asphalt for Mountain View Elementary’s new playground! Members from Granite Construction shared how asphalt is made and poured, engaging students in how the process relates to what they have been learning about in their science class. Students received hands-on learning by making no-bake cookies made from oatmeal and melted chocolate, then rolling them out with soup cans to represent how asphalt is created.
Before heading out to the worksite, students received important safety instructions and were given hard hats and safety glasses. At the worksite, students observed an example of how what they have been learning in their science class applies to a real-world circumstance.
Thank you Granite Construction for taking the time to share your work and create a fun learning experience for our students!
