Hello families! I am an elementary school teacher and recently I had an after school STEM Club. Every week students would come to learn about science, technology, engineering, and math! I must admit that I love science. I think hands-on learning is a great way for kids to learn. Fun science experiments will be coming to the classroom. In this Exploring Caves class, students will learn one way that caves are formed through an experiment. Have your clay, sugar cubes, and water ready! There...
In this Exploring Caves class, students will learn one way that caves are formed through an experiment—some rocks dissolve more quickly than others. Students will learn where the largest known cave in the world is located and what it is called. Students will be introduced to another cave in China through a Scholastic video that is less than 2 minutes long. Students will need supplies if they would like to do the experiment; however, it is okay to just observe as well. Supplies are listed below.
I have taught this science lesson to my after school STEM club. I also have a Bachelors degree in Early childhood education and a Masters in teaching mathematics grades 1-8.
Clay or play dough. May be able to use homemade but I haven’t tried. A sugar cube A dropper or a straw to use as a dropper: may have cheaper options but here is one. https://amzn.to/31n6fow Empty small bowl Some water
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
For younger students especially, parents are requested to join or check in on their child frequently. Students may need help to make their “cave” or to use their straw as a dropper.
There will be an engaging video from Scholastic made for kids!
