Elementary Eagles Get Hands On With Science
Kindergarten through fourth grade students have been visiting the middle school science lab for hands-on learning opportunities that correlate with their topics of study in their science curriculum. Most classes visit about twice a month for various experiments and demonstrations. For example, Mrs. DiPasquale's first and second-graders studied states of matter, and fourth graders did Mystery Bag Investigations using the scientific method. Mrs. Moore, the 7th grade science and high school biology teacher, partners with the K-4 teachers to help support what they are learning in the classroom in science and provides a "lab experience" for them. Some of the other topics covered this semester have been weathering/erosion, and using observation and science tools. Kindergartners were able to use different scientific tools in the lab such as triple beam balances and microscopes. Visiting the science lab for these activities allow students to engage in kinesthetic learning and get excited about bringing science content to life in the lab!
