Learning By “Leaps” and Bounds
KSDS Lower Schoolers springboarded their learning as they incorporated Leap Day activities into their week’s experiences. In math class, the students measured their own leaps, and used their data to discuss units of measurement and data analysis. Fourth graders found friends in Kindergarten and helped them make origami frogs. Students made weekly “jumps” on the calendar, observed video of some of nature’s finest leapers, and hopped down the hallway from lily pad to lily pad practicing geometric and arithmetic patterns.
