• Wading in the Water

     Wading in the Water image 2017-18   


    This year ‘Wading In The Water’ inspires third graders to take a personal stake in their efforts to conserve and avoid polluting our waterways as they gain hands-on insights from the Science Center’s class-lab. Featured are integrative activities from multiple subject areas to encourage personal exploration as they sense the need to be aquatically aware and responsible for one of our greatest natural resources on Earth. As a result of the lab experience, students may be encouraged to make sensible, conscientious steps in their communities to preserve one of our greatest natural resources.
    *Grade level reading is highly recommended, which allow greater independence of students at the ‘helm’ of activities in relationship to mandatory alignments (exhibited below).
