First graders got an active lesson on electricity. Strawberry Electric (SESD) came to East Meadows with their ‘cantaloupe man’ to demonstrate effects of electricity. Students loved blowing things up, and seeing what would happen to ‘cantaloupe man’ throughout the demonstration. They learned that workers must wear protective gear when working with electricity. The students tried on protective gloves and learned it wasn’t so easy to pick up coins while wearing them. The first graders left the demonstration with a better understanding of the benefits and dangers of electricity.

Put aside paper and pen and learn math through games. On Friday, April 1, East Meadows sixth graders hosted a Probability Fair so students could do just that. The sixth graders have been creating and coming up with games that younger students can play. All of the games will produce results that can be graphed so students can then see how probability works. Looking around the gym one can see that probability plays a role in many common activities. Students had fun with cards, gumball machines, tossing games and spinners. What a fun way to learn math.
