Kindergarten gets the MOST
Friday, January 24, 2020—#SASCS Kindergarten classes took a trip to the Museum of Science & Technology - MOST where they were able to see just how big dinosaurs were before they went extinct. The classes interacted with the hands-on exhibits while working on their social skills, such as taking turns, working together and using their manners. Atoms also had a blast walking through the enormous heart and listening to the heartbeat, one student said: “it was great for meditating.” This was one of their favorite trips so far as they were able to be hands-on for most of the day.
Atoms Climb to Great Heights
Tuesday, January 28, 2020—Our Elementary & Middle School #SASAtoms visited WonderWorks Destiny last week to break out of the classroom and explore the concepts they have been talking about in class, IRL. While Third Grade Atoms spent the day exploring the exhibits, Fifth Grade Atoms took to the Sky! Fifth Grade Atoms explored the museum and the ropes course to celebrate the end of the unit of study about scientists and inventors. Every student enjoyed the museum as they experimented like the innovators they had studied. Nearly every student tried the ropes course and several found it very challenging. Pulling together they cheered each other on when students became nervous or uncertain. Many students conquered their fears and realized that they can do hard things. Our #SASAtoms found lifelong lessons in this fun activity! Go Atoms!
