Week 4 Cooking Week:
Utilizing science, math and artistic principles, students will engage themselves in the fun world of cooking. Nutrition and exercise will be stressed for a good healthy well balanced lifestyle. Students will be encouraged to make healthy snacks at home, and even learn about culinary artists and their careers. There’s even a possibility for students to create and try their own recipes.
Week 5 Math Week:
Students will explore math in an upbeat, fun environment. Students will engage in several different activities from finding their own theorem, attempting to solve problems that are offered for money, and even exploring the art and math concepts of origami. Students will be publishing their own math manipulatives during this week.
Week 6 CSI Mystery:
Upon entering the classroom students will be given a challenge to solve, students will explore the science behind CSI and how to solve crimes. Students will even learn about their Miranda Rights by a college professor from Pierce College.
