4th-graders experience hands-on learning
Blackberry Creek Elementary School students on Friday had the unique opportunity to see a Velomobile (Hybrid Bicycle) up close and in action. Fourth-graders study inventions and ideas over the course of their year as part of their science curriculum. English Language Learners (ELL) Director/teacher Katie Henigan, and Josh, a student, team taught lessons to all fourth-grade students last week. The lessons focused on the invention of the hybrid car, and the Velomobile. Mr. Joe Bassett, President of Dawn Equipment Company, in Sycamore, and his wife Rachael, shared their experience and knowledge of hybrid cars, and the Velomobile bicycle car, with students during the presentation.
