Students in Ginger Rackley’s 5th grade classroom at Saluda Elementary have finished their first science unit, Force and Motion.

The culminating activities for this unit were a Muddy Sneakers outing and a visit from FENCE to reinforce the vocabulary and concepts learned during this unit.

“I love that Muddy Sneakers is outdoors,” said student Chela Ray. “It helps me learn more.”

Student Aiden Murphy Broda added, “At Muddy Sneakers, it was fun racing boats to learn about force and motion.”

Of the visit from FENCE, student Cooper Rhodes said, “FENCE is a new experience and you learn through the different experiments.”

And Nathaniel Harms perhaps summed up the activities the best. “FENCE is a fun way to learn science,” he said.
