Another great visit with Migrant Summer School students
Friday was a fun day with the young kids at Cassia's migrant summer program. Since the students were younger, and their English language skills are still developing, we focused on the basics of the scientific process. Their questions were great, and then we did some activities to strengthen their observation skills. During their micro scavenger hunt, we searched outside for different colors, textures, and items that they brought in to classify. Finally, we used the animal cards to talk about living and nonliving things, and food chains and webs.
The teachers are so great with these kids, and I am grateful that we have dedicated professionals willing to spend time with students throughout the summer months.
