Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!

Look what we've been up to in STEAM Class!

Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year!
Summer flew by and it is already time to get geared up for the new school year. 
Students will experiment, create, and learn in STEAM class!
It will be amazing!

Quarter Expectations

First Quarter Expectations

The first quarter will include projects for all grade levels of STEAM learners.

Kindergarten students tour the STEAM area and learn about other important places near the room. Being new to the building means they will need to know where certain important areas are so will will start with that the first week they are in class. Students will begin their STEAM experience with projects about the 5 senses. This will go along with learning in their classrooms. Experiments will increase student learning and understanding.

First grade will begin with a quick proejct on day one! This will allow them to work together to get the feel for STEAM class.  Students will be introduced to the stages of  matter and basic density properties. Student will participate in learning experiments to enhance their learning.

Second grade students start right away with a one day project building teamwork! They will then be working with forms of energy.  Students will work together to understand types of energy. Experiments will be conducted to connect their learning through doing!

3rd grade students will begin with a quick project on their first day! Students will work in teams with recycled materials to create and race a recycled racecar. We will learn a lot about team work and cooperation.

4th grade students will complete a quick project on day one! Students will also be introduced to some applications on the iPads. Students will then learn about physical properties of matter. It will be an exciting time in the STEAM room!


Things to Think About...

Thinking through Tinkering

Most students learn best through doing. Deciding what they can/should be doing is the hard part. This link is to a Scholastic article about Tinkering. There are many ideas about how to get your child started and what they might need/want to explore.

Attention Families.... 
Students of all ages are using recycled materials.
Please send in any non-glass recycled items that are clean and dry. Students can drop them off in the STEAM room on their way in to the building in the morning. 
We are currently looking for straws, skewers, coffee stirs, washers, bolts, plastic bottles (all sizes), bottle caps (both metal and plastic).
Thank you for your help!
