4th - 6th Grade Class Descriptions

Anatomy

Location: Room 103
We are marvelously and wonderfully made.  Each week we will take a look at a different body system and learn some fun facts and new words (like peristalsis!). We will explore through hands on projects, demonstrations, and projects.  Some of the systems covered will be skeletal, muscular, digestive, cardiovascular, and nervous.  (S. Wagner)

Crochet Club

Location: Fellowship Hall
We will spend the semester working on several small crochet projects, including some amigurumi.  Students will be working on a variety of projects based on their level of ability.  All abilities and levels are welcomed!  This class will be combined Jr/Sr High and 4th-6th grade. Supplies and project patterns will be provided.   (K. Allison & A. Karl)
NOTE: There is a $10 fee.

Dash & Dot Programming

Location: Room 105

Programming is not about writing code, but about problem solving. Coding is the tool used by programmers to solve problems. In this class children will learn about the tools they have available to them and will need to solve problems presented to them in various challenges. Problem solving is one of the most important skills you can learn, and in this class you will learn how to do it in a fun and engaging way.  Students of all experience levels are welcome to attend. Students will work in pairs and individually to learn basic programming skills. The students will complete challenges using the various apps connected to Dash & Dot. EVERY STUDENT WILL NEED A COMPATIBLE TABLET/PHONE (with Bluetooth enabled). Tablets are STRONGLY preferred. To check for tablet compatibility use this link: https://home.makewonder.com/compatibility. More information about which apps to download will be sent before class begins.   (J. Iovino)

Crazy Fun Math Club

Location: Room 105

This is no ordinary math class! It's not a class at all, but a club. There is no curriculum, no paper and pencil exercises, and no sitting still. The club will meet each week to work on a project or game to reinforce grade level math concepts. We will explore math concepts in a high energy and interactive club atmosphere. Projects may include marshmallow shooters, bouncy dice explosion, and toilet paper olympics to name a few. Students should be prepared to get moving, have fun, and maybe learn a little along the way.  (M. Weber)

Creative Cards

Location: Room 103

Who doesn't like to get a handwritten and decorated card? Well, sign up for this class if you're interested in making them! We will be using a 5 x 7 blank card each week and practice proper greetings, closings, dates, and a few sentences appropriate to the card receiver or holiday. Each week we will decorate the cards in a different way using techniques like collages, stamping, and drawing mosaics. The cards will be put in envelopes each week for delivery.   (K. Norberg)

Monsters, Myths, & Mayhem

Location: Room 104

"Long before there were books or television or movies, people sat around and told each other stories. Some stories made their listeners laugh. Others made them cry or shiver with fear. Some described real events of the past or present. And many tried to answer questions that human beings have wondered about since the beginning of time…..Societies all over the world have their own myths and legends. But they are more than just stories. Myths and legends tell us about a people’s history, science, and cultural values. They describe what people know, the things they believe, and what they feel is important.” (Quote by Kathy Ceceri, author of World Myths & Legends, Twenty-Five Projects You Can Build Yourself)Get ready to discover some surprising facts and enjoy some wonderful tales as we listen to stories, learn about history and geography, discuss cultural beliefs, and do some activities and crafts. We may even try our hands at some myth creations of our own!  (B. Bantle)

Nature Explorers

Location: Room 103

Explore the world around you and connect with nature! We have new projects and activities this year, and each class will be different. Activities will include science experiments, building, art, and journaling. Students will be encouraged to bring nature finds from home to share. We’ll be going outside most classes, unless it’s pouring. So dress for the weather!  (A. Darlington & K. Walker)

NOTE: There is a $3 fee.

Our WONDERful World

Location: Room 104

Ever WONDER about the things found in this world? WONDER how long it took to build the Great Pyramid of Giza? WONDER how big the Grand Canyon actually is? WONDER what types of animals live in the Great Barrier Reef? Well, WONDER no longer! In this class, we are going to explore some of the many Wonders of the World (Guess what – there are more than seven!) We will learn about ancient wonders, man-made wonders, and natural wonders. Each class will include an activity, craft, and/or game to go along with the lesson.  (R. VanReed)

Phys Ed

Location: Gym

Games, exercise and a variety of sports will be introduced. Emphasis on sportsmanship, skill building and physical fitness will be emphasized. (E. Potts)

Space

Location: Room 104

In this class we will explore all things space! We will take a look at the planets, stars, moons and more. Each week we will do an activity or project (STEM, science, art) relating to the solar system. We will also research and discuss current space exploration and rockets.  From the sun to the moon, NASA to SpaceX, and comets to constellations - if you are interested in space this class is for you!  (K. Bowers)

Watercolors

Location: Room 105
In this class, students will learn the basics of watercolor painting. They will be guided through several compositions while we explore several different techniques. A few of the projects we have planned include colorful autumn leaves, a galaxy painting and a snowy winter scene. A supply list will be issued before the class that includes brushes, watercolor paper and a paint set.  Parents will be required to purchase supplies and send them in with their child on the first day. The supplies will then be stored at co-op for the remainder of the session.   (K. Allison)
NOTE: Students will be required to purchase their own supplies from a list sent out by the teacher.
