Going into middle school or looking into mastering your skills learned in the sixth grade? This intro to middle school class promotes the academic, social, and emotional growth of students by expanding on the foundation established in elementary school. Students will dive into English, mathematics, history, humanities, and science in a fun and engaging environment filled with projects and activities.
Students will examine key scientific concepts and explore physical, earth, and life science through fun and challinging activities. Math topics range from 2D vs 3D to creating their own place value system. Art topics focus on the elements of art and PE lessons would be split between conditioning and skills. Students will create science concept cards, math notebooks, and their very own art portfolios.
Come and experiment and build skills with a wide range of media, techniques and “”concepts in art”” from drawing and painting to sculpture, clay and mixed media. Students will learn individually through choice based activities (stations), as well as through cooperative (and safe, socially distanced) group activities. Students will also learn by looking at the work of a wide range of historical and contemporary artists, focussing in particularly on underrepresented and less well-known artists as inspiration for self expression and communication.”
