During Clark House STEAM classes, we have been getting to know each other through songs and games and fun activities. We also have been working on building a safe, nurturing and empowering learning community together. Below is a quick glimpse.
We have been raising, observing, and releasing Monarch butterflies. The transformation from egg>caterpillar>chrysalis>butterfly has been amazing to experience!
After the butterflies hatched we learned about how they eat with their probascis. We made nectar using a ratio of 1:4 sugar and water. It was a delicious treat! Some of us think it would be pretty cool to be a butterfly.
The first graders and kindergarteners used a map of The Country School to go on a hike in search of milkweed plants. We found some! On our maps we recorded the locations and observed the caterpillars we found.
