Students with Code and Go mice.

In science, Mrs. Schellenberg's class was learning how animals process information in their brains. They watched a video of a mouse that learned, after many attempts, how to move through a maze to find its food. Students learned that the mouse took a long time making its way through the maze while it was learning. However, the mouse was able to get through the maze easier and faster each time by lots of repetition, making memories and not giving up. They then connected that information to their own learning in their own class and lives--that through repetition and not giving up, we become better at the things we learn and they also become easier. The class then finished up by experimenting with Code and Go Mice by making mazes and having races and then finishing up with coding our mice to do a synchronized "class dance."
