OFRS Kindergarteners Learn with the STEM Coach

Mr. Jones, District STEM Coach, worked with Kindergarten classes to develop students’ ability to think critically, develop and use a model, and to carry out investigations involving the structure and function of tree parts. Students created and used a model of a tree to discover the design aspects that give it strength. Students also identified these design strategies in structures that people build.  This activity was an extension on the the kindergarten Tree and Weather unit.
