MCDOWELL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Students honored


Each week in the library at McDowell Elementary School two "doing their best" students are picked from every class to go in to the all school "Red Hot Reader" raffle.  Everyone always waits expectantly to see if they are the winner. Look at this week's smiling faces, after they were picked!



MCDOWELL ELEMENTARY SCHOOL: Look out below!













Mrs. VanDerworp at McDowell Elementary School had this to say about a recent discovery in her class:


“My third graders were engineers. Their task? They had to work with a team to design and create a ‘helmet’ for an egg.  The egg had to withstand a drop from the ceiling of our hallway without becoming damaged in any way. Some teams were successful, and others had to go back to the drawing board.”

Here are some McDowell Elementary School pictures from Mrs. VanDerworp's field trip to the Museum of Natural History in Ann Arbor.  


These third graders learned that dinosaurs have something in common with birds.  Birds and some dinosaurs swallowed stones to grind up their food to make it easy to digest.
