Recycling Project

Please Send in Recycled Items

Recycling project
Attention Parents and Families:
Students in grade 3 are collecting recycled materials that are not glass.
Please send in any clean, dry recycled plastic items you might have! Water bottles, plastic containers, straws, coffee stirs, and botlle caps to list a few.
We are also looking for some wooden skewers. These items will be used for our first project!
Thanks for your help!
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.

Quarter Expectations

Second Quarter Expectations

The second quarter will include projects 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 food as an energy source. Students will work with hands on activities and experiments that allow them to see how food chains/webs work. They will learn about how herbivores, carnivores, and omnivores and how these eating habits impact our planet.

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!
