"Book Buddies" at Betances STEM Magnet School
Every Friday students from Mrs. Walwyn’s 4th grade class and students from Dr. Sullivan’s Kindergarten class participate in a program called “Book Buddies.” Students read, share favorites stories, and ask questions to one another about characters and events.
On this particular Friday the K students were invited to the 4th grade classroom to participate in a science lesson where students had to test items to see if they were magnetic or not.
The 4th graders from B STEM explained the process to the K students by using graphic organizers and having the students make predictions, test them out, and then record their results.
