My Students

My students have shown a contagious love for learning. We are a departmentalized elementary campus and I see 3 first grade classes daily for STEAM, Social Studies, and Language Arts. Robust discussions during projects are definitely taking place. They are not afraid to think for themselves, be creative, or ask questions!

All the students in my class are scientists, technicians, engineers, artists, and mathematicians!

I am continually impressed with their excitement about everything to do with STEAM! They take initiative and have displayed a wonderful propensity for sharing creative ideas!

My Project

In science we will soon be discussing interdependence. We have already talked about reducing, reusing and recycling in Social Studies. My students will be using 2 liter coke bottles (reusing) to create their own terrariums (interdependence). In creating their terrariums they will also be following step by step instructions and utilizing their creativity to design an attractive terrarium display. We are in the process of gathering the plants for the terrariums from moss in the woods and my mother's greenhouse! The charcoal will act as a filter in our terrariums while the moss, miniature figurines, and marbles will be used for decorations.

Students will be able to extend their learning by taking home their terrariums and a science experiment kit.

The take home science kit will include 12 experiments, instructions, and a science journal for students to take notes. The take home science experiments are a great way to involve parents and get them excited about science!The magnifying glasses will be used in their observations on rocks. The tooth picks will be used along with marshmallows to recreate constellations. The Ziploc bags will be used to hold Epsom salt which will be used to make a salt crystal geode experiment. I already have most of the other supplies needed for the take home science experiments.
