WASHINGTON ELEMENTARY - Washington
Elementary is a rural school in Cleveland County, North Carolina that has
developed an interesting way of incorporating I. Science MaTe into their
everyday curriculum. The Sky's the Limit theme
revolve around the Applied Science and Universe Cycles;
Shake, Rattle, and Rock around Plate
Tectonic and Rock Cycles; Splish, Splash
around the Water Cycle; and That's
Life around the Life Cycle.
Over the last 3 years we have worked with Bev Sanford and her staff, to develop a National Science Foundation (NSF) grant to provide "trunks" for the local Winston-Salem school system. Using parts of the I. Science MaTe program, we created "science trunks" that can be loaned to local teachers. SciWorks inservices teachers on how to use the material. Math/Science Nucleus is also working with Blair Flack on using science trunks for afterschool enrichment for 6-8th grade students.
