A Bad Case of Stripes

Kindergarten students participated in a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) workshop on Thursday, January 31st. They began by reading and viewing the online story A Bad Case of Stripes by David Shannon. Afterward they divided into groups and rotated through five different workshop centers, reinforcing classroom skills in Art, Science, Engineering, Math and Writing.  Each center included a challenge, including creating and coloring a new Camilla, writing a description of what happened to her, decorating the student-created “greenhouse”, completing a paper describing the plant life cycle, and creating and using a graph.
