Our AHA! Moments take place in our classrooms, every day!
For an inquiring young mind, what can be more exciting than a lesson that combines science with candy? At Rowntree Montessori, we combine modern and traditional methods to create a dynamic learning environment for all students. While our students are often engaged in hands-on activities using various Montessori materials and technological tools such as Chromebooks and interactive whiteboards, we have found that everyday materials can also help to enhance our young learners’ experiences. Our students can often be found using cardboard in creative ways in solving STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) problems, and in the examples below, they are learning about colours and the Scientific Method with the help of milk, dish soap and Skittles! This type of creative and interactive teaching and learning sets Rowntree apart as a place where both academic expectations and fun in the classroom are set to a very high standard.
