If your class is looking for STEAM integrated lessons to make learning hands-on, let me tell you how In-School field trips are fast and easy to book!
This week I was in a classroom teaching lessons about minerals that involved magnets. We talked about the make-up of the earths core, how magnets are sourced, load stones and how positive and negative poles apply to pull and push/repel and attract, and all 33 students were able to make and take their own Spirograph magnetic mazes as well as magnetic poles to show their friends and family.
Giving students the opportunity to bring their creative experiments home to display, discuss and play always lead to a greater understanding of the applied curriculum. The at-home application is so important to allow these young scientists to continue learning while they use the vocabulary to describe their work and their exciting lessons with family and friends.
I had a great time today with the Makawao Mini-Rams!
Earlier this week I had the most amazing time in the city of Palmdale visiting with a group of kindergartners! I always love how amazed they are by simple experiments. Thank you to the Chaparral Elementary School staff and volunteers for having me. I can't wait to come back soon.
Last year was phenomenal. I have been travelling all over meeting new scientists last year. I was so busy that the last few months barely gave me enough time to think about the new year and all of the great ideas I have for camps, shows, teacher trainings, and a little something extra I will be announcing soon!
So far 2018 has been super busy. Last week, I was visiting one of my favorite spots over in Newhall , CA. The kids had so much fun.
I really enjoy it when the kids are anxious and excited to participate and this group certainly was!
I want to send out a special thanks for having me to Bea and Jeremy. You two made it such a pleasure to be there.
Interested in having me at your after special event? Send me an email at email@example.com!
