NAEP Results show Tennessee is on track to meet goals.
According to the 2015 National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), Tennessee is still the fastest improving state in the U.S. since 2011. Across the nation, students struggled in math, but Tennessee students bucked the trend, rising to the top half of states on fourth grade math (up from #37 in 2013). This marks the first time Tennessee has ever ranked in the top half of states in any subject or grade.
Students at Lenoir City Elementary School have been applying math skills in project based learning through the use of Legos. Students in Kindergarten, first, second and third grade have been working with a Knoxville based company called Bricks for Kids. The company brings a Lego based field trip to the students in the elementary school's Science Art and Math class. The building projects that students complete in the field trip experience target science standards for each grade and are tailored to the students' developmental levels. Kindergarten and first Grade students built a car and with the use of ramps they were able to study force and motion. The second and third grade students built motorized alligators and butterflies by which they explored the concepts of gravity and motion. The school says they would like to expand this project in the future and that this is the perfect opportunity to expose their students to what the world of Lego education can offer.
Pre-K and Kindergarten students at Lenoir City Elementary School attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the school's new playground on September the 28th.
