It was an old-fashioned concept, the school carnival, with an updated twist, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) concepts. Inspired by watching “Cain’s Arcade” on YouTube, fourth grade students at Immanuel Lutheran School created their own carnival games using a variety of recycled supplies they brought to school. Working in pairs, they named their games and created “rules” for each game. They then shared their Force and Motion carnival with the 2nd, 3rd and 5th grades at their school.
These creative students want to share more and are bringing back their carnival as one part of a community event next month. Immanuel Lutheran School will hold a “Maker” night for the public on Tuesday, April 5, from 6:30 - 8:00 p.m. Children will be able to “make” a variety of things, have fun at the Force and Motion Carnival and participate in STEAM-focused activities.
