Replicating the Mayflower in Smithtown

Prior to the Thanksgiving break, students in Susan Picini’s class at Smithtown Elementary School engaged in STEM-based activities, working in groups to design, build and test Mayflower ships. The students created a blueprint, listed materials and built their ships. They tested to see if the ship was able to float and how many “pilgrims” their ship could hold without capsizing. They problem-solved to redesign and alter their ships if needed. The students used words such as buoyancy, capsize, vessel, and weight to describe their process. Finally, the groups reflected on their designs through discussion and writing.

In October, first-graders at Smithtown Elementary School shared in some fall festivities. The students used their imagination to paint pumpkins, made pumpkin seed predictions and counted them, and wrote adjectives to describe their pumpkins. They worked as a team to scoop and group pumpkin seeds by 10. The students listened to a Halloween story “The Little Old Lady Who Was Not Afraid of Anything,” and made a cute black cat to decorate their home.  

5th Grade Recess PSA

The SEL Faculty Council is focusing on helping all children feel connected socially. This "PSA" was created by 5th grade students who seek to help younger children understand how to reach out to one another, so that everyone has someone to play with during recess.
