Fall 2015: Leadership, Cooperation, Patience & Flexibility The 4th Grade is working in science teams to enhance their learning about Soils, Rocks and Landforms. Working in these science teams allows the students to share the materials; build bigger and better ideas; work on JDS values such as leadership, cooperation, patience and flexibility; and to have fun! The class has talked a lot about what it looks and sounds like to be on task and to be kind while working in a team. So far, the 4th Grade teams have investigated different types of soils and the effects of physical and chemical weathering on rocks. At the end of a science investigation, students appreciate each other for the leadership and compromises they have noticed that day.
