In October we explored the sun and the effects it has on Earth. We then brainstormed ideas ofhow we could reduce those effects. Student’s paired up and built a structure to protect an animal of their choice from the sun. This was their introduction to the Engineering Design process and they did a FANTASTIC job!!
We will start STEAM stations this month. These are the fun things we will be learning about in each station: Science - Hands-on exploration with microscope and slides, pine cones, pumpkins and leaves. Technology - Hand-on learning using ipads with OSMO. Engineering - Building with Legos and Keva Connect. Art - Make something original using their choice of tubes, feathers, pipe cleaners, scrap paper, glitter glue, etc. Discovery - Turn a shape into something else.
