My Students

My classroom is made up of 21 wonderful kindergarten students. They are hands on learners and enjoy anything STEM! They love to understand the how and why, even in math!

Students will engage in learning through hands on science activities.

They will be able to observe life cycles and participate in science experiments on our mad scientists day! The mobile science cart will give them the opportunity to explore on their own!

I am looking forward to making these activities available to my students. They will love them, thanks for your support.

My Project

My students will learn about the life cycles of ant, butterflies, ladybugs and praying mantis. They will get to observe and explore their development. This will be the perfect way for them to learn about insects.

They will also get to participate in mad scientist days!

We will participate in weekly science experiments using the kits provided. They will get to conduct and observe experiments to inspire them to be future scientist!

I will also use the mobile science station to create monthly themed science projects for student to use and create. This will help them to see the world around them and observe it.
