This summer we will explore 4 different science topics over 8 weeks: Fun with Sun, Geology, Wildlife Tracks and Hydrology. We will meet each Wednesday at 10am at the Kanab City Library multi-purpose room. The first week will be an hour long classroom session with activities related to a topic then the following Wednesday will be a 2 hour outdoor exercise with hands-on experiments related to the topic from the previous week. Parental presence is optional for classroom sessions, but some outdoor exercises may require parental accompaniment. We will notify parents ahead of time via text message or phone call with information pertaining to each class and field trip.
This program is design to increase the vocabularies of children ages 4 to 6 by giving opportunities to learn, hear, and practice new words. Research has indicated that the more words a child has when entering the school system, the more successful their learning becomes. Additionally, this program gives exposure to different science subjects through reading, new experiences and activities. By giving students the opportunity to talk with their peers, parents, and other adults about what they are learning and experiencing better equips them for understanding what is happening in the world around them.
Kane Education Foundation would like to thank the SUU Center for STEM Teaching and Learning, Kanab City Library, Allies With Families and the BLM Field Office for partnering with us in this project.
Because class size will be limited based on the number of leaders and volunteers we have, we will also be asking for Volunteers to help with these fun 1-2 hour classes.
