On another day, the students were in a construction zone, where Dolangie De Hoyos enjoyed dressing up like a construction worker. “I like this job; I want to be in this job,” she said.
Austin Waller, a 3rd grader, smiled as he explained why he was measuring yellow tape box outlines on the floor. “We are measuring area and perimeter,” he said.
Each grade has different lessons within the classroom transformation. For instance, 5th grader Amelia Soto’s favorite class was also in a construction zone. “We ended up hooking up a bunch of batteries to power up one light bulb, and it turned out really bright, and that’s been one of my favorites.” The program has been a great success, allowing students to learn in a fun and engaging way.Thanks!
