Santa’s Parachute Challenge


English Class fifth grader peer pals worked today with first graders to collaborate on a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) challenge. They needed to design a parachute for Santa Claus in case he should fall out of his sleigh on Christmas Eve. The fifth graders and fourth graders really worked together well!


It was with great excitement and enthusiasm that the children followed the descent of their Santas. There was even a competition to see whose Santa took the most time before landing!
