Spring SAVY 2020: Day 1 – Operation Save the Beach (1st/2nd)
Greetings SAVY Parents,
We had a great day of learning in the session, Operation Save the Beach! It was a joy meeting your child and facilitating the learning that took place on Day 1. Perseverance was the name of the game, and the first and second-grade scholars rose to the occasion. They demonstrated critical-thinking skills, problem-solving skills, and how to embrace a challenge. The goal for the day was to determine if a beach environment is a system. After working with different models, students gained a solid understanding of what a system is and the generalizations, which support the concept. By the end of class, students were collaboratively working and brainstorming with peers about what defines a system. I’m excited about Day 2 on February 15 as we step into the role of a scientist by studying weathering, erosion, and the impact it has on a beach environment.
See you next week!
Dr. Tanisha Wesby
