All fourth graders at Hammond Eastside are studying a unit of inquiry on “How the World Works.” They are investigating how scientific principles help influence the way we live as humans. More specifically, Mrs. Stacy Lindsey’s fourth grade students are analyzing how the use of a ramp affects the speed of a car. They are gathering information regarding gravity and how it affects our daily lives. The best part is that HEEM students are so engaged in their learning!
