STEAM at Jones

All grade levels have started their units which align with the science content they are learning in their classrooms.
The STEAM classes will need materials for projects which could be everyday recyclables or other low cost materials as listed on this webpage.  If you are willing to donate to class projects it will be greatly appreciated!
Thank you for your support!!!  Jones students are ready for a fun-filled full STEAM ahead learning adventure! 
3rd Grade
Students first unit will focus on Earth Systems, Structures and process.  Students will work in groups to research landforms by using a webquest to conduct research, filling out a graphic organizer, creating a poster presentation with facts, creating a 3-D model with clay, and then discuss engineering as they decide on how to build a roadway to successfully be incorporated in their 3-D landform model.  
4th Grade
Students first unit will focus on Matter: Properties and Change by exploring rocks, minerals, and fossils then creating prints to represent fossils.
5th Grade
Students first unit will focus on Structures and Functions of Living Organisms. Students worked in groups to extract DNA from a strawberry.  Slides were created and students were able to view/observe various single/multi cell slides under the microscope.  As students continue to learn about the human body in their science classes, they will read various articles and make a fake lung.  Students will explore the field of biomedical engineering as they create a face mask filter to ensure the fake lungs work properly.
