Congratulations Ms. Murray!!!

Murray LOTW


Ms. Murray's leap day lesson hopped into action with an engaging exploration of elastic potential energy, gravitational potential energy, and kinetic energy. Students eagerly unfolded their origami skills by crafting paper frogs, which were leaping with excitement on the lab tables. As the frogs sprung to life on the lab tables, students "croaked" with excitement, analyzing the physics behind each leap.  With every jump, students pondered the leap day relevance and "ribbeted" with enthusiasm at their newfound understanding. Ms. Murray cleverly integrated frog puns into the critical thinking questions, challenging students to hop to conclusions about what occurs during the frog's jump.  


In a leap of logic, students also identified the independent, dependent, and controlled variables, showcasing their prowess in scientific inquiry. By the end of the lesson, the classroom was abuzz with the energy of discovery, proving that on leap day, even frogs and physics can make a quantum leap!  As they reflected on their learning, students couldn't help but leap for joy at the newfound understanding they had gained. With each hop, they felt themselves leaping closer to mastery of the subject matter, taking a giant leap forward in their scientific journey.

Ms. Murray's leap day lesson wasn't just educational; it was also a leap of faith in the power of hands-on learning and creative exploration. The frogs may have been made of paper, but the excitement and energy in the classroom were as real as a leap year itself.  As the day drew to a close, students left the classroom with a leap in their step, eager to continue exploring the fascinating world of physics. Who knew that on leap day, the biggest leaps of all could be made in the classroom?
