Kindergarten Outreach
If you are looking for a little fun in the upcoming winter break consider some homemade Playdough.

The Kindergarten Outreach for November was a great success! Mr. Ransford was on hand to guide us through a S.T.E.A.M. lesson that resulted in the creation of our very own playdough. For those of you who are not aware, S.T.E.A.M. is a new program at the elementary school level. S.T.E.A.M. stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Once a week, in Mr. Ransford’s class, students are given the opportunity to explore these subjects.

On Outreach day, the lesson involved math, science and the arts. Students were able to measure ingredients, follow a recipe, watch as the ingredients were cooked together, and then build and play with the newly created playdough. If you were not able to make it that day, below is a copy of the recipe that we used. It only takes about 10 minutes to create and the hours of fun it provides are well worth the time investment. Hope to see you next time at Kindergarten Outreach!
