April 2017

First graders have been engaged in various STEAM learning activities. STEAM is an innovative, exciting method of instruction that encourages all learners to participate in combined disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math. The teacher is the facilitator, but the students are the ones who are actively discovering and learning through experimentation and inquiry. They participate in collaborative hands on learning which is not only educational, but encourages risk taking and inspires the interest of every child.

Mrs. Stott has come into the classroom on several occasions and taught the students about various science content areas including sound. They participated in various scientific experiments where they created and made instruments that made vibrations. The kazoo was the BIG hit!

1st Grade Full STEAM Ahead!
