Past Lessons


Last week we compared living and non living things and hopefully you were able to check out the Nat Geo Invertebrates page.  It was the one with all of the neat insects.
This week we are going to take a look at life-cycles and insects.  You may remember lifecycles from when we learned about plants.
1. Check out the video 
2. Check out these great online options form the Pittsburgh Zoo! 
3.  Check out these insects!  Have you seen any of them lately?
Have a great week! 

April 20th-24th STEAM Activities

We are going to start looking at life cycles and identifying living and non-living things. 
This week's lesson is in three steps:
1. Watch this video from Mr. Okon
2. Check out this SciShow Kids Video to build on what you've learned.  Use the link below the picture.
3. Explore the Nat Geo Invertebrates Page.
Have  a great week!

Mission Statement

The goal of science education is to develop within students an understanding of the world around us by fostering curiosity, developing inquiry skills, and creating an excitement for learning science.

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.
