The Meemic Foundation recently awarded Woodside Elementary School approximately $1,300 to purchase materials for stream table models. All fifth grade students will use the stream tables in their earth science unit. Teams of two or three students will be able to see and create the parts of a river and observe various effects of water on land.
Woodside fifth grade teacher Karen DeShong, who applied for the Meemic Foundation grant, said the stream bed models will actively engage students as they learn about basic stream functions and flow properties.
The grant will be used to purchase the materials, and parents or community members will be asked to assist with the construction of the tables.
The Meemic Foundation was established by Meemic Insurance Company to offer financial assistance through grants to educational employees and institutions.
