Description: This class will be alternating between STEM Challenges, basic science experiments, and Zoology.

The STEM challenges involve beginning engineering and critical thinking skills. Students will be building, creating, problem solving, and learning to work as a team. Students will also be doing a variety of projects learning all about animals and their habitats. We will be keeping a science/lab journal throughout the year --drawing and writing about what we learn.
