Sanfordville students apply science learning to the real-world

October 3, 2019

As part of their science curriculum, Sanfordville students step out of their regular classroom and into the STEM lab housed in the school’s media center to learn from STEM teacher Brittni Aberasturi. 

The STEM learning approach involves research around a driving question, critical thinking, communication, and real-world application achieved through collaborative and creative problem-solving. 

This week, Jennifer Disy’s fourth grade students set out to discover how favorite animals sense and respond to danger. Once they complete their research, they will use their newfound knowledge and collaborate to create models of animal identification signs as you might find at the zoo.
