Summer Science Activities for All Ages

Our Kindergarten students LOVE doing science experiments!

Recently we asked them what their favorite part of Kindergarten has been, and many of them said “science experiments.” Some may think that because we are a virtual school, our kids spend all their time on the computer. This couldn’t be farther from the truth!

We get our Kindergarteners into the physical world as much as possible to have the same hands-on learning experiences you would find in a brick-and-mortar school. This year, they have gone on nature walks, made slime, created straw rockets, seen sound waves at work, and discovered how animals stay warm in icy water…just to name a few!

When we do science experiments during Class Time, our students and teachers prepare the materials beforehand and we go through the steps together. To ensure our students can follow along, we have an external camera that we use to show our students what we are doing up close. Our students can also turn their web cameras on to show us their results and share their thoughts.
