For the summer of 2019, GIVE is making learning fun with our summer workshops! 1st-5th graders will be given the opportunity to join other kids in exciting educational activities. Students can innovate through our STEM workshops, increase creativity through the Arts and Crafts workshops, and become inspired through our English and Reading workshops.
STEM (science,math,engineering, and technology) activities teach teamwork, creativity, and many other skills which will be useful throughout your whole life. We will hold various engaging activities geared toward elementary school kids. We will be holding 3 activities. Our first, Bottle Rockets, examines the reaction between baking soda and vinegar. Our next activity, Spaghetti towers is meant to show which structures make the strongest tower. Our last activity, CD cars, shows how friction plays a role in the environment.
Arts and Crafts Workshop
In the Arts & Crafts workshop, students will be able to journey into the rainforest, desert, and ocean with six different arts and crafts projects, including slime, sand art, and origami! Not only will kids be able to learn about the different biomes of the Earth, they’ll be making fun souvenirs that they can take home!
English and Reading Workshop
There are two workshops that will be offered for 1st- 5th graders:
1st-2nd Grade Workshop: Students will participate in a read-aloud of a picture book led by a guest presenter and then contribute to a group discussion and/or activity. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
3rd-5th Grade Workshop: During the first half of the workshop, students will participate in a "book tasting" activity, where they will be able to get to know chapter books of a variety of genres they may not have read before. The second half will be an art discussion lead by a guest presenter where children will observe and infer from a small selection of artwork and relate it to the books they explored earlier. Snacks and beverages will be provided.
