Summer SAVY 2019: Session 2, Day 1 – Environmental Explorations (Rising 1st/2nd)
Greetings from Environmental Explorations class, here at SAVY!
Today has been exciting, as we have started talking about what scientists do. I am so impressed with how much these young scientists already know! We started a “Words We Know” chart, that will live in our classroom this week. Just today, we added the words wafting, (prefix) pre-, data, predict, bioluminescent, (suffix) -ist, observe, and investigate
We also started a Science Notebook today, that our budding scientists will bring home on Friday. In this notebook, they will write down many things they learn, throughout the course of the week.
Tomorrow, I have a scientist friend coming to visit who studies pathology, microbiology, and immunology. The children will have the opportunity to ask him questions about what kinds of things he does, as a scientist. However, tonight your student should ask you a question, for us to discuss in class tomorrow:
If you could study ANYTHING, what would it be?
I’m looking very forward to helping your student develop a deeper respect for and application of science, as we move through Environmental Explorations.
Until next time, stay SAVY 🙂
