STEAM Learning in Action!

Ms. Prado's 2nd grade class at the Greengate location participated in an awesome Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics lesson! They completed measurement stations and designed advertisements for their Market Day where they also learned about consumer and producer concepts. They also organized a puppet show where they presented their animal research reports from Science. FUN!
