In our third Biology unit, Busy Bees and Other Interesting Insects, we are developing the understanding that animals have special body parts to help them to survive. STEM is the acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM Education integrates a combination of these disciplines to promote scientific thinking and a deeper understanding of science content.
As part of our Art Smart curriculum the Kindergarten Prep class presented their first theatrical production. The children adapted Maurice Sendak's Chicken Soup with Rice and worked for six weeks to launch its production. These photos were taken during our dress rehearsal.
