Third Grade Exploratorium

Children’s curiosity is sparked with hands on activities, which leads the child to make predictions and hypothesize outcomes. The child, thorough exploration, begins to manipulate their environment to discover new vocabulary and concepts through inquiry. With out student population, it is necessary to provide engaging and authentic experiences to build background knowledge in the area of physical science.

Our intention is to enable the child to take ownership of their learning experiences through observations, recordings, and questioning.

Our vision is to construct exhibits taken from The San Francisco¬†Exploratorium’s Science Snack Book for each classroom’s students to tinker and investigate. We’d like to replicate demonstrations on Energy, Forces and Motion. In our experience, we’ve found that it is difficult for our general student population to conceptualize abstract concepts such as force and energy. We look to inspire the children to have conversations about what they experience and have rich dialogue that only happens in this sort of environment.

With your support, this can become a reality in our classroom, and so many students can experience greater learning because of our efforts.
