The first graders at Marion G. Vedder Elementary School spent the last week of October engaged in fall-themed activities. As part of a literacy activity, the students wrote
the different steps to carving a jack-o-lantern. To hone their fine motor skills, the first graders made skeleton crafts out of Q-tips. For their STEM lessons, the students first tested candy corns in different liquids and
predicted which would dissolve the quickest. The students also worked in small groups during their STEM lesson to build the largest structure out of candy pumpkins and toothpicks.
