January is STEAM Month! There will be optional weekly trivia questions and optional STEAM activities students may complete with their family each week. I am including a link to a video that Mrs. Emerson created that has more information. Please ignore the part of the video that says there is a STEAM button on the homeroom course card, that is incorrect. To find the STEAM activities, your child needs to press their Science course card. Enjoy and please note that these activities are OPTIONAL.
The children are going to be writing an informational piece about animals.
