Damascus Transverse Wall set to open on 2/19/15

A special thanks to the Damascus PIE for a donation of $4700 for a transverse climbing wall.  The wall will open with a Math and PE lesson on February 19, 2015.  The lesson will focus on physical well being and math.


First Grade students will be climbing the walls to demonstrate what they know about the attributes of 2D shapes.  PE Teacher Chris Tucker and the Damascus PIE recently installed a 4 panel Traverse Wall in the Gym. Groups of 4 students will analyze  the traverse wall filled with shape magnets and determine whether to sort the shapes into two or three groups based upon the defining attributes of the shapes.  Defining attributes include sides, angles, and vertices. If they use non-defining attributes, such as size or color, they will have to revise their plan and move the shapes again.
