STREAM in Pre-K
Our Pre-K3 and Pre-K4 has embraced our new STREAM education model just as all of our other grades have this year!
Throughout a two week period in the Fall our PreK streamed along with the story Little Red Riding Hood. Our students learned about characteristics of wolves in Life Science, were introduced to forest life and why its important for us to take care of all of God's creations, in Art and Math they created their own forest with shapely trees, and drew their own depiction of Red Riding Hood. The unit ended with an engineering challenge, which is pictured above! The children were thinkers, planners and creators! Bridges were the popular choice to get Red away from the wolf! Others thought of trampolines, cars and trains!
