Olds Elementary

GRADE: 2nd
PROGRAM: Sound Surprise
Scientist: Christine

It’s beginning to feel a lot like Chris…Wow! This school is right by my house. What?! How have I never been to this school? I used to run by this school every Wednesday with a friend from Run Club.

These were the thoughts running through my head when I pulled up the school on Google Maps. I was delight it was only 11 minutes away and that I would be in a beautiful neighborhood in downtown Raleigh. Although, it was raining I was delighted to try out a new school. That’s one of the most delightful things about this job. Visiting new schools! I have been to over 200 different schools in NC! Maybe even more than that, and I love adding more to my list.

A new school has a good ring to it. Ring? Noise? Vibrations? What a perfect day to teach “Sound Surprise” to the 2nd graders at Olds. I succeeded at surprising them with a needle balloon pop and made student giggle with delight when being splashed in the face with water.

So much water on a rainy day! Hopefully, next time, it will be sunny, but like I said it didn’t’ get my spirits down.
