In this hands-on course, elementary students will meet once a week to complete a fun new activity that corresponds with our monthly themes (see below for themes and sample activities). Each class will open up with a fun ice-breaker including "Would you rather?" questions, themed show-and-share, and sharing fun facts about ourselves with the class. Then, we will move right onto the hands-on activity of the day. Engineering challenges will include a brief planning time before we build. ...
Students will be introduced to the various aspects of STEAM: science, technology, engineering, art, and mathematics in a fun and age-appropriate way.
September: apples, toothpicks, construction paper October: pumpkin, golf tees or toothpicks, rubber bands, baking soda, soap, vinegar November: leaves, coffee filters, rubbing alcohol, crayons and white paper December: white washable paint, alka-seltzer, oil, water, mini marshmallows, toothpicks Reminders will be posted in the classroom weekly.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
25 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parental assistance may be needed as we complete science experiments and activities that include the use of scissors and household supplies.
