This year Mrs. Lisa Stripling, Mrs. Joy Asbrook and Mrs. Renee’ Combs classes were fortunate to receive a Science grant from the Gulf County Education Foundation.  This grant allowed science kits and other common core related materials to be purchased for their classes.  The first grade and Bridges students were able to work together in teams to complete experiments that included: Butterfly Pavilion, Discovering the contents of Geodes, Force and Motion and other activities.

It was a great opportunity for the classes to get some hands on experience with Science.  We found that the students loved working together to achieve their goals.  The experiments were very helpful in concreting the science concepts and will be remembered by all as a fantastic learning opportunity.

Pictured above are some of the students as they rotate through many Force and Motion centers.  We were able to service 43 students with more hands on activities.
