This week it was 4th grade's turn to learn about Little Fire Ants and other invasive species on O'ahu! Check out these crazy close ups of the specimens 😳 They were given fire ant collection kits to do their own research of this species at home. They'll collect samples and utilize a microscope to analyze them in school next week.
Kindergarteners created colorful drawings and paintings of the Great Barrier Reef and practiced adding and subtracting to 10 with subtraction bowling, card games and kite making activities! (use arrows to scroll through gallery)

Happy Hat Day
🇯🇵🥁Mana Sensei's class made hand-held taikos/tambourines🥁🇯🇵
The students of Makua Alaka'i's class played a game of Kilu, which is an ancient Hawaiian game played only by ali'i. An equal number of boys and girls sat opposite each other and slid coconut shell saucers across the floor, and tried to hit their opponent's shells.
Mrs. Bandini's 4th and 3rd graders battled each other at structure challenges. These challenges helped hone their skills in engineering and architecture.
The 3rd graders tried their hands at weaving this week with Aunty Ursula.
Look closely, as there are Hawaiian flora drawn intricately within the weaves.
Ms. Toyama's 1st graders created Watercolor Salt Art and Georgia O'Keefe's enlarged flowers.
Tie-dying FUN during Mrs. Bandini's STEM class!👕👚🌈☀️
