Introduction

 Hello.
 
I hope everyone is doing well.  Each week, I will post the current lesson below the introduction on each grade level page.  Older lessons will get bumped down one spot.
Individual grade pages to the left.

 Feel free to check out the other grades for more content your child may enjoy.  There is no rule saying they can't review old material or look ahead to new. You can also scroll to the bottom for exra science activities.
  
Thank you for your hardwork, and please let me know if you have an questions.

Course Description

The STEAM lab is essentially a science lab that focuses on using hands on materials to learn about or our world and to design solutions to real world challenges. Each science unit uses the different parts of STEAM every day, but each day of the unit will focus on a particular part.

The Science focus involves learning how our world works through a variety of media.

The Technology focus has 2 parts: First, students will be looking into the progress human have made in dealing with the current topic, Second, students will use the classroom technology to study each topic further and complete projects based on science careers.

The Engineering focus has students using what they have learned to explore different solutions to real world problems using hands on materials and modeling.

The Art focus deals with the development of critical thinking in problem solving, cultural understanding and awareness, and creative experiences and expression for the purpose of cultivating a lifelong appreciation of the arts.

The Math focus centers on tracking our progress in each experiment and measuring the effect of each variable we test.
