Last Friday, students in first grade were challenged to create a plant using four different materials. The finished product had to have two movable parts and have all parts labeled.

This lesson also included a time for them to evaluate their products to determine if they met the criteria and to speculate on what they would do differently if they did this lesson again.

They enjoyed the lesson a great deal and worked together well.

STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.  Students at The Learning Center are exposed to STEM lessons frequently as part of our school wide emphasis on STEM.  However at TLC, STEM is taken further by expanding it to E-STEAM which stands for Entrepreneurship, Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics.
