$15 a class X 8 weeks = $120! All supplies included!
This series will focus on teaching about recycled art, found objects, environmental protection and self-confidence. We will collect and use trash, leaves, rocks, grocery bags, jars, water bottles and toilet paper rolls to make amazing art over the course weeks. Each lesson discusses the environment, recycling, our impact on nature and affordable art. This series has a strong mental health component. The course is non-cumulative, so missing a class isn’t a big deal.
We make observations, ask questions, design and conduct scientific investigations while discussing the results of our investigations.
This class fulfills all learning objectives for the Manchester City Kindergarten, First Grade and Second Grade Science Process Skills under SPS1: Scientific Inquiry and Critical Thinking Skills (INQ), SPS2: Unifying Concepts of Science and SPS3: Personal, Social, and Technological Perspectives (Includes Design). Please see the SAU 37 Science Curriculum PDF.
Classes are on 4/5, 4/12, 4/19, 5/3, 5/10, 5/17, 5/24, and 6/7 from 4pm to 4:50pm Eastern Time via an online classroom.
Please note: No classes on 4/26, and 5/13. These are Manchester School Vacation Days.
Local students may sign up until 4/1 at 5pm. You will have to pick up the supplies between 4/1 and 4/5.
Late sign-ups mean we can’t pack your supplies and arrange for you to pick them up. All payment must be made via Credit Card on the site by this date. You may sign up late, but will not receive supplies until the following week.
We pack all kits ourselves and then sterilize the insides using our UV Sterilizer.
Class is limited to 10 students.
Students in Kindergarten-2nd grade will need a parent’s help setting up and some attention throughout the class.
3rd-6th grade is the target age range for the class and will be able to set up, participate and clean up on their own.
7th+ grade can have a lot of fun in this class, but most of the scientific concepts covered will not be new. It can still be a a lot of fun making creative recycled projects for older students.
