September 2017 Tech/PBL Teacher
Encinal Elementary teachers, Shannon Flores, Steven Olivares, and Nadia Perusquia, have been chosen as Tech/PBL teachers for the month of September for their PBL titled, “Catapult Project.”
5th grade students, as engineers working in groups, created catapults that launched various items. Students designed and built the catapults in Mr. Olivares’ class and weighed the mass of the launching items. The groups then measured the distance and the items launched in Miss Perusquia’s class uisng customary and metric measurements. In Mrs. Flores’ class the students created their presentation boards and wrote their scripts that they then used to present.
