Our Gingerbread School: A Kindergarten STEM Project

December, 2016
Submitted by: Benjamin Johnson, Kindergarten Teacher, Graceland Park/O'Donnell Heights Elementary/Middle School
 
Kindergarten students in Mr. Johnson's class are so excited about the fact that their school will be getting a new building within the next few years! They spent two months learning about architecture and engineering so that they can build a model of what their new building will look like. They met with the architects who are working on the design of the new building, drew blueprints, and printed model pieces using a 3-d printer. For their final project, they built a gingerbread model!
