The second quarter will include projects/experiments for all grade levels of STEAM learners.
Kindergarten will be learning about the water cycle. They will complete experiments to help them understand how water changes but really never leaves. They will also be working to learn about how important water is to our planet.
First grade learning about plants and their parts. Students will work with hands on activities and experiments that allow them to see why each part of the plant is important. They will also expand on their matter knowledge with an experiment using seeds.
Second grade is expanding on the food chain concept. They will learn about producers and consumers. Students will classify food and experiment with changing common foods. Students will learn about needs and wants and how some basic needs are essential to life.
3rd grade students will begin to learn about electrical circuits. They will work to create basic circuits in a variety of ways. Look for these projects to come home after they are completed. Students will then begin a project using both Art and Math aspects of STEAM. It is sure to be colorful!
4th grade students will be working on concepts of matter during the second marking period. They will complete activities to better understand matter and state changes. There are some big surprises this marking period. Be sure to ask your child how things are going in class!
