Get a jump-start on the next school year! Fast Forward introduces students to the iconcepts they will encounter in their next grade level—in a fun, exploratory and no-pressure/no-homework/no-grades structure. Module 1 (June 27 - July 8) Catching the Learning Bug! Scholars will be buzzing with excitement as they become experts on insect life cycles, habitats, and behaviors as they incorporate skills in both language arts and mathematics using hands on manipulatives and digital tools. We'll also study "People Who Make a Difference." Scholars will embark on a journey learning about the contributions of different individuals and how they changed the world we live in. They will learn more about social studies and the lives and accomplishments of heroes while also practicing new skills in both language arts and mathematics. Module 2 (July 11-21) From Farm to Table. Scholars will get ready to pitch in and work together as they learn the social science of how a product moves from a farm to their own dinner table. They will work collaboratively and use both mathematic and language arts skills to build their own classroom farm out of recycled materials, create factories, and market and sell their own products! Magnets Attract and That’s a Fact! Scholars will explore and investigate the invisible world of forces around them by experimenting and observing magnets and their characteristics. They will then practice their scientific inquiry as well as learn more language arts and mathematics skills by completing hands on projects and interactive activities.
