Google Expeditions is amazing. We have used virtual reality the past two weeks in the library to extend on students' learning in class.
Third Grade: Went inside a cloud! This was an extension of their work in science about the water cycle and climates.
Fourth Grade: Went inside a circuit! We analyzed differences between parallel and series circuits. In addition, we saw how circuits are created in today's world through computer software.
Fifth Grade: We went to a Native American reservation and looked at different aspects of Native American culture. This connected to fifth graders' work in social studies.
Sixth Grade: Traveled all around the world to different biomes. We took notes on the characteristics of each biome and animals that lived in each place.
The students loved this interactive experience. It prompted great questions and discussion. I can't wait to connect this to learning we do in the future!
Storytime Stem has been the most fun time with my little ones! This week we read the book 10 Apples Up on Top by Dr. Suess. I picked this book because Kindergarteners are also learning about the life cycle of an apple. After reading, students got a chance to create a LEGO structure in which they could place two apples up on top! Kindergartners showed great collaboration skills throughout this activity.
