Elementary Science Lab (K-5th gr)


with Vanessa Moessner

Calendar Sep 24, 2020 at 12:30 pm, runs for 8 weeks

Session 2 - This Lab course will meet every other Thursday starting Sept 24th.

Each Lab class will consist of 1.5 hrs of hands-on experiments, activities, projects, and/or simulations based around one science concept.  

Topics are different each year.  Topic list will be posted in August.

Parents will need to supplement labs with at home learning by choosing to participate in the (free) online class or providing your child with books and materials about the topics.

Our online class:

Seesaw as a class informational platform

Content will be original or accessed from BrainPop or Ology

100% optional

100% free with enrollment in the lab class

Takes 10-30 minutes per day, depending on student interest

My goal for adding the online class to supplement our labs is to increase student understanding of concepts while showcasing how amazing and FUN science is!  Our lab time just isn’t enough!  In the past students have shown such interest in topics we are experimenting with.  Our online class will give us the opportunity to continue exploring.  NO PRESSURE to complete activities and assignments, but ample enthusiasm from me if exploration continues at home!  Students will not be “graded” on their work but encouraged to work up to their potential!
