The Woodstock Elementary School STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) Innovation Lab and Makerspace is an exploratory learning space that strives to infuse the STEM disciplines into the broader curriculum. We have established a science, engineering and design learning lab in its own dedicated space, preparing our students today with the critical thinking, designing, engineering and problem solving skills they need to fill the jobs of tomorrow!
Kindergarten Does A Sort to Identify Solids And Liquids.
As always happens with Kindergarten, I get so caught up in working with 20 plus little ones, that I totally forget to take pictures. They worked in groups of two to put things where they thought they belonged on the sorting mat. This was a very successful lesson, where they were very engaged with the question of what makes something a solid, and what makes it a liquid. About half of the class thought the baggy of flour was liquid, which opened up a lot of good discussion.
