Cassini´s Grand Finale.

Time ago in class we talked about the Solar System. Nothing that I did, explained or used in class stirred the minds of my little students as intensely as this video of NASA, today, explaining the exploration mission of the space probe CASSINI. The Grand Finale of this remarkable mission will take place next September. It will be the end of a great journey that began 20 years ago ...


This is how Earth looks from Saturn (this is the image NASA used to commemorate EARTH DAY). Truly awesome.

This morning we imagined, using LEGO BUILD TO EXPRESS, how scientists work in their labs, what questions they ask themselves when they are working...

Lego More to Math: The Snake.

Different challenges, more and more complicated. The goal is to build a snake with the same length and shape as the one shown in white on the right side of each statement. Really motivating and demanding.
The activity was carried out by first graders.

Symmetry and Lego More to Math.

In September I enjoyed much the activity that Agnieska carried out with her students in Bialystok:

 Today I share the results of the same experience with my students from Salamanca. Dziękuję bardzo, Agnieszka...
