Air pressure, drag, thrust, propeller.
These are some of the important vocabulary words that students are encountering in our current STEAM study about flight and rocketry.
In word study these past few weeks, students learned words for the concepts they are exploring both in their STEAM research and their paper airplanes activities. Adventurous students created videos about these new words and concepts. They are excellent teachers.
Many students have been using objects from home to give everyday examples of the concepts they are explaining.
We use FlipGrid to make our videos. The students have creatively used this resource to teach about what they know and reflect! Some have created animated videos so that they can draw as they explain the concept.
These videos are great practice for our upcoming STEAM presentations, when students will teach about their topics using these new vocabulary words. We hope you will be able to join us at 9AM on June 12! Stay tuned for more information, including zoom links.
