Gribbin Elementary School



 

Welcome to STEAM!

STEAM is a class where students will be doing many fun and exciting projects.

The K-2 STEAM program promotes critical thinking, problem solving and teamwork while aligning with the Next Generation Science and the Common Core Learning Standards.

Students will come to STEAM twice each month. Each time students attend STEAM class, they will act like scientists or engineers. This means that they are going explore the world around them, work cooperatively, think critically, design, build and solve problems.

In addition to STEAM class, students will have a research class. During their time in research, they will complete a study on a topic related to the district’s science or social studies curriculum. The research involves working in groups, using iPads to access electronic sources, taking notes and creating a final project with the information that they have obtained.

I look forward to working with each of the students at Gribbin this year!

Warmly,
Mrs. McKenna
