First Grade began the new year in the STEM Lab by learning more about light. We talked about three important words: TRANSPARENT, TRANSLUCENT AND OPAQUE. Students also explored how opaque objects will block light and create a shadow. They also created their own shadow puppet to take home.
Mrs. Guckert is the STEM Lab Teacher at Rocky Mount Elemetary. This is her 4th year teaching at Rocky Mount. The STEM Lab is fully funded by the Rocky Mount Elementary School Foundation. This program would not be possible without the generous donations to the Foundation from the Rocky Mount community.
