First and fourth grade students at Central Boulevard Elementary School worked together in the building’s STEM lab to create bird feeders for the surrounding environment.

During the week of June 10, first grade classes studied bird feeders and their importance, then were joined by fourth grade classes to create homemade bird feeders from several household and purchased products. Under the instruction of STEM teacher Mara Karfinkel, the students used milk cartons, food containers, donut boxes, tape and tree branches to manufacture feeders.

The design for each feeder was illustrated by a first grade student. Fourth graders helped in bringing the sketches to life, using the materials offered in the STEM lab to construct functional bird feeders to bring home.

“Thank you to the fourth graders for coming to assist the first grade classes in creating their bird feeders,” said Ms. Karfinkel.
