A Quick Peek Into the Grade 1 Classroom

I start with a question and work backwards to an experience with my students. This is a shift. It takes it slower but the learning deepens!

The Grade 1 students are finishing up their unit on “Solids and Liquids”. In the science curriculum, students act as scientists and to conduct investigations of liquids. They are expected to how various liquids look and feel, their fluidity, how they mix with water, and their degree of absorption.

We experimented with bubbles in the cold weather, and each student recorded their observations in their science journals. I also interviewed some of them. Check out the following photos of our Grade 1 Young STEAM Inventors exploring bubbles and recording their data.
