Integrating ICT in our Science Classes

Grade 6 students are learning how to represent data collected during scientific investigations in different ways. For this reason, we went to the computer lab and implemented what we are learning during ICT sessions to construct graphs using Microsoft word.

We are vertebrates

Grade 5 students are studying about vertebrates and invertebrates, and since we can't see our own bones we downloaded different X-ray applications and used our tablets to explore our bones. It was interesting to integrate technology and use our tablets in the science sessions.

Place Value Cups

Grade 4 students used Styrofoam cups to understand place value, learn the name of large numbers, decompose numbers to expanded form, and write numbers in word form. 
It was an interesting activity that all my 4th graders enjoyed 😊

Get to know KSPS 4th graders through M&Ms



It's my first year to teach KSPS 4th graders Math, so it was very interesting to know about them through M&Ms game. Every student answered a question according to the color of M&Ms he/she picked. Finally we all enjoyed our time eating delicious M&Ms.
It was nice meeting you my students

It was very interesting to know them in a mathematical way!

Science Hands-on Activities


Since students learn best when they are actively engaged, several hands-on activities are constantly performed during the science classes. The photos show the creative work of my young scientists.
