March 2017 Theme

RocketOur March Theme:
Mad Science & Wild Imagination

     Our experiments, investigations, discoveries & creations will be fun, interactive and oh, just a little bit on the wild side this month!  If you think this is just about math & science… think again!

     In gym & music, we can make music with glasses of water.  We can change notes by changing the length of a violin string… why is that?  Have you seen a vibration graph of orchestral music?  As we dance in 4/4 time, we’ll discover that exercise makes our hearts beat faster.  In art, we can make our own paint, paper and clay.  We can paint with pendulums, make transparent pictures, experiment with oil, dye & water and explore the science of color.   MicroscopeThe library is full of mad science books… and there are also plenty of stories about everyday ‘scientists’ and their discoveries & inventions.  And learning to write our names is more fun with invisible ink!

     After all, imagination & mad science took us from dreaming about flying… to rockets to outer space.  Across our curriculum areas, this theme is bound to captivate curious minds!
