Ms. Raffaniello's second-grade class at Rhame Avenue School have been learning about properties of matter by engaging in a hands-on science experiment, as part of the district's new Science 21 program. For the experiment, students constructed a bridge that would be able to support 21 plastic bears for sixty seconds. The students used their knowledge on properties of matter to decide what would be the best materials to use when constructing their bridge. They enjoyed working collaboratively in their lab groups and supported each other through trial and error.
