    STEAM Studies 
     
     
     
    This year the third grade will be exploring the STEAM fields: Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics through research and hands-on activities.  We will take a look at one great achiever in each of these fields, and then, go in depth into their lives and their accomplishments.
    Science: Sir Isaac Newton
    Technology: Bill Gates
    Engineering: Alexander Graham Bell
    Arts: Leonardo daVinci
    Math: Leonardo Fibonacci
     
       Later in the year, we will become Package Engineers as we create a plant package using the engineering design process                         featured in A Gift From Fadil.
