The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and the calendar says it’s Spring! Perfect time to go on a virtual Field Trip! Come along as Sope Creek Counselors help students in Grades K-3 explore the San Diego Zoo.
Mrs. Hunt and Mrs. Frederick would probably think the zip line at the zoo was lots of fun. Ms. Murphy would probably practice her screaming!
Activity: After you take a tour of the zoo, think about the animal you would be if you could choose to be one. Draw a picture, give your animal a name, why you chose it, and email your picture to your grade level counselor. We would love to make a slide show of all of your awesome ideas!
We haven’t forgotten about our Soaring Eagles in Grades 4-5. Come along on a virtual field trip to the Stanley Black and Decker Makerspace. Here you can watch as students your age learn about the engineering process and create crash test vehicles using the 4 Cs of STEM: Communication, Collaboration, Creativity, Critical Thinking.
Activity: After enjoying the field trip, use the beginning initials in your first and last name, and give a name to a virus fighter you could invent. For example, Mrs. Frederick’s initials are J and F. She might invent a “Jinormous Fly” to fight a virus. Mrs. Hunt’s initials are L and H. She might invent a “Lightning Helicopter” to fight a virus. Ms. Murphy’s initials are C and M. She might invent a “Corona Masher”. Draw a picture of your invention, tell why it would be effective and send a picture to your grade level counselor. We would love to do a slide show of your creations! And don’t forget to check out STEM Stars #11 and #12 in this blog. Stay tuned for STEM Star #13 on Monday!
