STEM Day at Arbor Station Elementary School

On May 9, all students in each grade level participated in Science,Technology,Engineering and Math (STEM) activities.  This was STEM Day in the state of Georgia.

In Kindergarten, the children were studying the life cycle. The teachers demonstrated how fluids flow up the stem of a flower. The students then wrote a sentence explaining this phenomenon. Students completed the “Life Cycle of a Plant” flip chart from Promethean Planet to demonstrate an understanding of how a seed grows into a flower.

In first grade, the children were studying characteristics and basic needs of plants and animals.   They participated in sorting activities. They sequenced the life cycle of plants and create a book about the life cycle. Brainpop and Brainpop Junior videos were also used.

In second grade, the children began the lesson on the life cycle of a butterfly with a Brainpop Junior video. The teacher discussed the life cycle of a butterfly. To demonstrate their understanding, each student created a diagram of the life cycle. They glued the following items on a paper plate and labeled the stages: marshmallows (eggs), gummy worms (larvae), Tootsie Rolls (pupa), and crackers shaped like butterflies (adult).

In third grade, the student learned about being an entomologist. They went on a “Critter Craze Hunt”. Teachers discussed the parts of insects. The students captured different bugs. They observed, drew and wrote about their insects before releasing them.

In fourth grade, the students read the book To Fly, about the Wright brothers. Each student designed and built a flying machine. They took the machines outside to see whose would fly the farthest.

In fifth grade, the students discussed what STEM was and what type of jobs were STEM jobs. They watched a video on car design. They then drew and designed a car of the future and wrote about it.

Students and staff enjoyed the day.  It was a hands on day of learning.
