8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Calling All Meteorologists

1201 (Christina Gardner)

We will be learning about weather patterns. How the weather is made and how it moves and more! We’ll conduct experiments trying to recreate weather and learn about what goes into putting on weather broadcasts. We’ll also have a chance to explore Green Screen technology to deliver our own weather reports. Join us to learn all about the weather around us.

10:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. Calling All Vet Meds!

Class 1202 (Angela Beddingfield)

Do you love animals? Are you curious about animals and their behavior? If so, join us as we become a veterinarian for a week and learn all about caring for animals. How does a polar bear stay warm without wearing a scarf? Do dogs really hide bones? This class will focus on animals, and we’ll discover there is so much to learn and explore!

1:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. Zoo-Wee Mama! Diary of a Wimpy Kid

Class 1203 (Melissa Martin)

Zoo-Wee Mama! There is so much to talk about this week. We’ll sort the class into “Reading is Fun” book clubs, like Greg Heffley was in Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Groups will get together to read, discuss, and laugh out loud. In addition to having fun we’ll cover important topics from the books like peer pressure, friendships, dreaming big and the importance of believing in yourself. We will start our own diaries and engage in fun activities like a game of Cheese Touch, giving dramatic renditions of Wimpy Kid scenes, creating “Zoo-Wee Mama!” comics and character yearbooks.
