Let’s do some hands on math work! Build 2D shapes with popsicle sticks! Talk vertices and edges, angles, perimeter, symmetry, and more as you build creative shapes. You can even up the challenge by trying to create 3D structures!
Manipulatives make math more manageable and the Library’s Math Manipulatives Learn @ Home Kit is filled with tools like fraction circles, ten frames, dice, and more that teachers use all the time in their class! For all the details and to order yours, click here: https://forms.gle/cj257GT6yJedrrzRA
Who says you need fancy robots or screen time to practice coding? Learn ways to introduce coding and practice techniques like problem solving and debugging using simple toys you have around the house!
Baking is a hands on way to do some science experiments because baking is all about… Chemistry! For the holidays, why not make some beautiful, cinnamon spiced apple sauce ornaments? Check it out!
Miss Laura is sharing our favourite robotic ball: Sphero! Sphero can be programmed using a tablet to do all kinds of tricks! Race and roll, flash and flip, all while learning how to code! On the Sphero website, there are challenges and lessons that are organized by grade level and by topic! Check it out!
Time for a chemistry lesson with Miss Laura! Today we’re learning about polymers, viscosity, and molecules, all while making: SLIME! You’ll need glue, baking soda, and contact solution for this experiment, and of course a space where you can get a little bit messy!
If you want to understand coding, you first need to understand patterning, so join Miss Laura this week for a precoding, patterning activity! What kind of patterns will you create?
