Our AHA! Moments take place in our classrooms, every day!
Brought to you by Rowntree Montessori Schools…Nurturing Tomorrow’s Achievers since 1969.
This past week, during a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) activity, our Prep-ONE students learned how to create 2D shapes using straws, Popsicle sticks, connectors, paper, scissors and magnetic shapes. Building strong engineering and math skills is important at Rowntree Montessori Schools because we believe that such STEM skills will help prepare our students for the future. However, we also believe that building students’ character is equally important. Teaching our students skills, such as working together in small groups, problem-solving, team work and leadership are all essential character traits. This lesson provided an opportunity for our Prep-ONE students to practice their math, science and engineering skills, as well as their collaborative and problem-solving skills.
