We hade a STEM-tastic TIME learning about different methods of telling time last week! To wrap up our learning, I gave the kiddos a challenge... You're lost in the woods. You don't have a watch and your cell phone is dead. Using only the materials in your backpack (a paper plate, pencil, marker, tape, piece of paper), what is a way you can create to tell what time it is before it gets dark? Boy, are these kiddos smarties! They came up with a sundial right away. But that was the easy part. Now they had to build one - that works! They had a fantastic time troubleshooting and working together to get the job done! Way to go guys!
We had a great first field trip to the Orlando Science Center on Thursday! The kids were amazed and engaged and had a great time. They got learn about native Florida wildlife including alligators and snakes (eww!). They also got to play with all kinds of sciencey stuff including two hands-on STEM activities! They were building shelters and making electric circuits. We had a fabulous day and can't wait for our next day out!
Tomorrow is our FIRST field trip of the year! The Firsties are so excited! Okay, I'm excited, too! We're headed to the Orlando Science Center for a day of science fun and learning. I'm planning on taking lots of pics so look for them in the next post! Can't wait to see the kiddos in the morning!
