The SoundKids content framework is a collaboration between science, reading, math and art. This combination nurtures students’ creativity and curiosity all at the same time. Each hands-on and rigorous interdisciplinary session of SoundKids focuses on:
Math: Counting, tallying, and measuring are all important skills that students need to master early on. Math will be included in all stations. For example when studying the difference between fresh, salt and brackish water, students will measure the temperature. When learning about adaptations, students will measure the length of fish.
Science: Examining, for instance, an assortment of shells, or looking at plankton through a microscope, children will use their senses to compare and contrast, make observations, and predictions.
Art: Concentrating on the day’s theme, such as life cycles, children will utilize their creativity in using different colors, textures, and materials to craft a related project.
Reading: Stimulating students’ minds and imaginations through investigations of fictional stories. Students are read to out loud as a group. Books focus on an animal from the local environment, a specific adaptation or a coastal habitat.
