Room 3 Newspaper Fun

This term our inquiry is 'WOW' World of Wearable Art.  Today Room 3 participated in a STEM challenge.  The students were placed into teams of 4 and were asked to 'dress' one of their team members.  Everyone worked together and created some great outfits in only 20 minutes, using  newspaper and tape:

Room 3 Te Reo

Today Whae Adrienne showed the students of Room 3 how to make kawakawa ointment.  The recipe can be accessed from this link : and the students can make it at home over the holidays if they wish.  We chose to soak the leaves for 2 weeks over the school break rather than boil the leaves for 4 hours.

The beeswax is quite expensive - so we divided the recipe by 5 to make it a little cheaper.
