The use of legos can be a great math tool that is fun for scholars and actively engages their learning. Our scholars in Ms. G's class delved into much more than math during their Lego Ratio STEAM Lab activity while other scholars enjoyed an art integrated activity with their multiplication lesson.
In the Lego Ratio STEAM Lab activity, scholars at One School were able to see the practical use of science, engineering, arts, and math. They first found the ratio of red, blue, and yellow bricks and followed certain directions to build ratios within a building. For the second part of this activity, our creative scholars modeled their own design that was later re-created at a larger scale while developing hypotheses and exercising trial and error tests to find their answers.
Other scholars were introduced to Paul Klee and the art movement of cubism in Ms. G's second activity titled "Illusion Multiplication Art Activity" . In this lesson, the scholars were able to see examples of cubism and tessellations. They were then inspired to create their own version using multiplication and graph paper.
Check out the scholar driven exploration!

Today was no ordinary day in science class for our 2nd grade scholars. They attended a Mad Science in-class interactive workshop. Our young scholars were actively engaged in problem solving, discovery and exploratory learning as they ventured into the study of our world's ecosystem. The Mad Science hands-on approach is aligned with *STEM objectives. It focuses on stimulating their imaginations using lessons that teaches kids about the fun of science. As always, it is such a joy to see our scholars develop an excitement to understand the world they live in and to marvel at the wonder of life that God has beautifully and intricately designed.
