Here’s a little about each day:
Cotton Candy Clouds: Students learn or review the four types of clouds, make a cloud viewer to explore and observe, create the clouds with cotton candy (or cotton balls), and use their creative writing skills to write a cloud story
Once Upon an EXPERIMENT: These two experiments are tied to Fairy Tales! The first experiment uses the story of Snow White. Students complete a “poisonous” apple experiment. Then the students complete a STEM project with the 3 Little Pigs.
Learning with Lemonade: Students make Lemonade in a Bag and a How To Booklet to describe the instructions. Students also observe a simple Lemon Sink or Float activity.
Emoji Excitement: Students have several different Emoji activities- Cracking the Emoji Riddles, Emoji Crafts with Emoji writing, Emoji Photobooth, and Emoji letters
Bubble Trouble: Students blow a bubble and create a class graph. Students also make a bubble gum machine to write about their upcoming school year.
RACE to the Finish: Students have 10 Lego Challenges to complete
Awesome Artists: Students complete a candy experiment, read a story and become artists!
Taste Test: Students taste three different types of pickles, describe the pickles, and create a class graph. Students also create a pickle art project.
Edible Engineering: Students work together to create Solar SMORES. Students also write down the steps using a pocket book and SMORES craft!
Blast Off!: Students write about their upcoming school year and make themselves as an astronaut, students make Balloon Rockets and test their flights!
