STEMed Up July 15, 2024 : Pirate Adventure

Posted by kimr on

Our theme at STEMed Up on Monday was “Pirate Adventure”.

The kids each built their own pirate ship. We then tested each ship to see how much treasure it could hold before it sank.

Our next experiment was to build planks using Keva blocks. The challenge required the kids to see how far out over the ocean their plank could go while still holding a LEGO pirate.

Chick-fil-A Story Time July 8, 2024 : Bugs

Posted by kimr on

We love story time at Chick-fil-A Gainesville (TX) (Gainesville, TX). This week we read about bugs. Ms. Kim taught us the ASL sign for “bug” so we could interact during the book each time we saw a bug.
