Jean McNair partcipates in their version of the 2018 Olympics

Jean McNair students have been going for the gold!  Students have participated in a five week Olympics that concludes with the awarding medals on Monday, March 12. Pictured: Adriahna, Thea, Natalie, Samantha and Justice experimenting with robots to look at how ice skaters spin.

Classrooms selected a country to represent in the McNair Olympics and could earn points for their country by submitting posters and reports about their country, bringing in newspaper articles about the Olympics, competing in classroom decorating and participating in STEM events in the Library. They could also earn points by completing reading challenges, such as reading 3 books from the same author, reading a book that is 25 cm tall or reading with a partner for 7 days.

It’s been a close race and students have learned many things about the Olympics and their countries.  Who will get the gold, silver and bronze at McNair?
