PACT/GIFTED

PACT/GIFTED

 

When entering the PACT room, you’ll be positive that you’re in Mrs. C’s room. This is where the PACT classes are taught. In PACT, we do amazing things. For example, balancing an egg three inches off the ground with just dry spaghetti, marshmallows, name tags, and straws. We also enjoy other activities such as building structures with straws, solving problems, puzzles or learning new games. Two of our favorite games are Set and Quiddler and you can find them at www.quiddler.com

Some of the other math and science projects done in PACT classes include:
