On Tuesday, March 21, Lancaster School was full of excitement, laughter, and learning! Through a generous grant provided by Prairie Public Broadcast-ing, Lancaster School hosted the PBS themed Wild Kratt’s science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) Night.
The evening was filled with different learning stations that all tailored to each child’s individual learning levels. The children were on a mission to visit every station and get a stamp on their learning passports. Once they completed their exciting missions, they earned a special prize.
Students wrote creative non-fiction stories, discovered how math manipulations can help us learn, explored science, measured animals using different units of measurement, discovered educational, kid-friendly iPad apps, and exercised their artistic abilities as well. Students enjoyed dressing up like the Kratt brothers and posing with the wild animals in the adventurous photo booth.
Prairie Public provided a wonderful supply of parent resources for helping children learn at home using the vast amount of valuable, kid-friendly, safe resources available through PBS online. Generously, Prairie Public also donated age-appropriate books for all of the children in attendance. It was a fabulous night of enjoyment and learning through exploration by all!
A special thank you to Prairie Public for sponsoring an amazing night and to Lancaster School’s teachers, staff, and volunteers that helped make the night enjoyable by all!
