Join us in this 30 week, 1.5-hour class as we take exciting trips on the magic school bus! This class will focus on science topics with the help of Ms. Frizzle and the Magic School Bus. Hands-on lessons will encourage students to take chances, make mistakes, and get messy with engaging science activities. Each week a book from the popular series will be read or occasionally the class will watch one of the latest videos and then spend a class period discovering and learning. Students will take part in group activities, play games, observe and perform exciting experiments all to reinforce the concepts of the lesson and encourage a love of science!
We will spend time learning about the amazing human body and how different systems work, the solar system and all of its mysteries, the life cycle of specific insects, unique animals and how they survive, the wonderful science of meteorology, chemistry, physics, and much more. This is a two year rotating course with new materials and topics. New books and videos will be used as well as a few repeat favorites with different activities.
This class is designed for the young learners and will be interactive and engaging. Students are not expected to know how to read or write nor or they expected to sit still for the entire class period. Each class will begin with a few minutes of hands on play using STEM toys: Magna-tiles, construction toys, Snap-circuits, Brain Flakes, blocks, and many other educational toys. This gives the children an opportunity to get the wiggles out and be ready to learn. Kids learn best by doing and by having fun! This class will encourage learning while engaging in educational activities that are enjoyable for the curious young learners!

COVID-19 Contingency Plan:
Our plan is to meet in person as soon as it is feasible. We may begin or cancel classroom meetings at any point during the school year as the COVID-19 situation changes. Our goal is to keep your family safe during this unprecedented time.
As a teacher of K-3 students, I feel that online classes are not feasible. I will reimburse for classes that are not meeting in person due to COVID-19.
