Science challenge in Pre-elementary: Conclusion

By Isabelle Gilet

Our PK1 & 2 classes are participating in a science challenge with the AEFE network of French school in North America. For the “défi science” they have to make 3 objects: one that shows the presence of the wind, one that shows the wind’s direction and one that can measure the wind’s strength. In previous posts, we followed their observations and experiments. Now the project is completed. Please follow the link to see the whole process and its conclusion.

Direction and presence of the wind

It is never too early to begin to integrate academic learning and intellectual learning. Laying the foundation for the development of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) skills at the early childhood level is critical to helping students to develop the necessary thinking and collaborating skills that they will need later.
