Next Year Readiness-Summer Support Page

Hello Parents, 
On this page you will find various suggested resources to help your child prepare for next year during the summer months.  I hope you enjoy!
SCIENCE
VIRTUAL FIELD TRIPS
In the link below, you will find many fun and exciting virtual activities for your student to participate in.  Included are virtual field trips to the National Aquarium, the Amazon, outer space and many more.  This link also helps your student become more comfortable with using technology.  Remember, none of the work that is assigned in the slides below will be graded but students can use it to practice their educational skills. Enjoy!
 
PROJECT BASED LEARNING
In the link below, you will find "Imagineering in a Box."  This program is offered through Walt Disney partnering with Khan Academy. 
"Imagineering in a Box is designed to pull back the curtain to show you how artists, designers and engineers work together to create theme parks. Go behind the scenes with Disney Imagineers and complete project-based exercises to design a theme park of your very own."
Khan Academy takes the student through the Imagineering process step-by-step.  Simply follow the modules.

We use a lot of science journalism and interactive notebooks throughout the school year.  Practice your science note-taking this summer.  Make sure to use dates, locations, observations, draw images and use any other information that may be of importance.  See the images and links below to help students practice their skills.
