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!
Third grade used file folders and pictures of the many components of a computer to build their own - complete their own screen saver design, motherboard, cpu, RAM and hard drive. We studied how a computer is similar to a human, and how it is different.
What does it look like to have a balanced life? How can we balance screentime with healthy and constructive activities? Students were asked to build a balance, and then write what they could do to balance screen time in a healthy way.
