STEM and Fun Day

Principal, Ms. Sheneta Smith

Superintendent, Dr. Brian Lindsey

Howell Graves Preschool engaged family interaction through STEM and physical education activities during STEM and Fun Day. This student-led event devoted the first half of the day to STEM activities and the second half to physical education. STEM activities are a part of the daily routine at Howell, and ones in which students are fluent. However, many of their families are not. The STEM portion of the day bridged this gap by encouraging students to share with families in the areas of science, technology, engineering, and math. Families and students rotated through classrooms and completed various activities. In science, students shared observational journals of plants and insects and showed families the plants they grew. In technology, students shared how to navigate Kodable on their Chromebooks and encouraged family members to complete a coding activity. During the engineering rotation, students and families reviewed the story of The Three Little Pigs, then worked to build a house out of toothpicks and marshmallows that would withstand a gust of wind. In mathematics, students taught families how to play math games from AMSTI kits. During Fun Day, students rotated among physical education activity stations and discussed key points with their families.
