It’s our annual SOS Day and the hallways and classrooms are filled to the brim with super-cool experiments and challenging scientific discoveries! Learners and classroom leaders are dressed as scientists to embark on multiple scientific journeys in classroom labs across our campus. Volunteers and community members assisted in planning and implementing unique, engaging, and meaningful lessons involving inquiry, discovery, and the scientific method. Everything from creating oobleck to analyzing a crime scene became reality today.
We were also blessed to have our friends from Wildlife On The Move join us for several shows throughout the day. Learners were treated to the expertise of experienced presenters dedicated to helping everyone become more knowledgeable about various critters in our natural world. They especially enjoyed helping students develop an appreciation for nature while fostering better understanding of the earth’s wildlife and natural resources. Each critter’s role in our natural environment is shared while the animals are presented in an entertaining and educational manner. There were LOTS of comments and exclamatory statements throughout each excellent presentation!
Schoolwide events like SOS are the creation of an extraordinary vision by our LME staff. Teachers are instrumental in finding needs (like science) and filling them in fun, engaging ways. Grateful thanks to our classroom teachers, the LME Science Committee, parent volunteers, community helpers, and visitors who embraced this vision. As a class of learners shared with me, “Science ROCKS!”
Note: Please enJOY the next week away from school responsibilities, homework, and schedules. May your week be filled to overflowing and shower you in extraordinary blessings of thanks and giving! 🙂
