Fourth-graders of Combs Traditional Academy, 37327 N. Gantzel Road in San Tan Valley, have been learning about magnets, electromagnets and circuits as part of their science curriculum.

They created their own circuits using wire, a battery, lights and some tape.

In addition, these hard-working students continue learning about fractions and decimals in math.

They also have been identifying main idea and details in various texts. Our students use those details to draw inferences from the text.
