Afterwords headed over to Edgar Road.
Walked around to greet students and teachers.
Met with building principal.
Drafted email about science kits (see below)
Happy Friday Eagles!
I am seeking out two important pieces of information for next school year.
1. Is our current kit schedule STILL accurate with all the changes that have happened in your building?
2. Does your team have any interest in expanding our MySci Pilot for science during the 15-16 school year?
Below is the kit schedule for your school. Is it correct in both order, number of classes and number of kits?
My Sci Pilot
This year teachers from around the district are piloting the My Sci units developed through Washington University (Learn more about My Sci HERE see their lessons and activities HERE). We’d like to offer to expand that pilot for next year if there is interest. Below are options organized by grade level and correspond to our new curriculum to be implemented in 16-17. Please consider piloting as a team for collaborative planning.
My Sci Kit
Make It Go! (Forces Unit)
Sun and Shade (Weather and Climate Unit)
Introduction to Plants and Animals (Plants and Animals Unit)
Birds, Beaks, and Babies (Plants and Animals Unit)
Sun and Moon (Space Systems Unit)
Putting on a Show With Light and Sound (Waves Unit)
Helping Seeds Travel (Interdependent Relationships Unit)
How Things Move (Forces and Interactions Unit)
Observing Weather Patterns (Weather and Climate Unit)
Tools of the Trade (Engineering Design)
Adapting to Change (Life and Environment Unit)
Change over Time (Life and Environment Unit)
Wind and Water Change the Earth (Shaping the Land Unit)
What is Consistent About Matter (Matter Unit)
Wave After Wave (Waves and Energy Unit)
What Energy Does (Waves and Energy Unit)
Earth Cycles (Processes that Shape the Earth Unit)
Using Our Senses (Survival, Senses, and Adaptations Unit)
From Sun to Food (Matter and Energy Unit)
What is Consistent About Matter (Structure and Properties of Matter Unit)
Our Place in the Universe (Space Systems Unit)
Using Our Resources Wisely (Earth Systems Unit)
NOTE: These kits would be IN PLACE OF our district kits.
What I would need to know from you if you are interested is:
1. If your team is interested
2. Which kits you want (all of them or just pilot select ones)
3. If you team teach you may want one kit with extra consumables, let me know the number of consumables.
4. Which of the Webster Groves kits you would NOT need.
Once I know the above information I will work with you to finalize drop off and pick up.
