LAB is offered as a one day program on Tuesdays only or a two day program meeting both Tuesdays and Thursdays. This program will be 16 weeks in the fall and 16 in the spring. It is an integrated history, critical thinking, and social program. Our hands-on history program is developed custom for our students by Ms. Allison, Ms. Victoria, and Ms. Mercado to teach history in a dynamic and fun way. This year our focus is American history from very ancient Americans through Westward Expansion. A typical day starts with a few minutes of outside play, followed by group discussion and review, reading aloud of dynamic books that teach our topic, followed by separating into two age varied groups - 6 yo 8 year olds and 9 to 11 year olds to delve deep into our history topic.
The two groups participate in age appropriate appropriate hands on activities including creating with clay, carving, cooking, and much more!
The history we cover in enriched through language arts reading and writing as well as related science topics like native American animals, topography, and more.
After history, our group gets back together for lunch followed by outdoor open ended play.
After recess, the groups divide to work on their Odyssey of the Mind topics or other creative thinking challenges both individually and involving serious team work.
