Social Studies, Science, and Health Units
We are currently in a Social Studies Unit. We fluctuate between Social Studies, Science, and Health throughout the year. Our Science Units have a lot of hands-on activities that require many materials that are found in our daily life. We will send home a list of “Much Needed Items” that we would appreciate donations from home. These include a lot of recycle items such as: toilet paper rolls, plastic bottles, paper towel rolls, shoe boxes, etc. Please start collecting. Our STEM lab needs these items as well. “Anything”
can become “Something” in a child’s IMAGINATION!!!!!
DREAM IT!!!! BUILD IT!!!
I DID !
We will also need a lot of parent support for many of our units. We hope to see you in the classroom this year. We are looking forward to working with our amazing parent’s this year.
