Known for his masterful approach to creating hands-on activities that help students understand abstract science concepts, science educator Mike Caouette returns to Charter Oak International Academy under this in-residence grant. All students in grades 2 through 5 will be engaged in instruction, experiments and projects that support and enhance the school’s IB science curriculum. In one-hour sessions with each individual classroom, Mike will focus his content and activities for Grade 2 on States of Matter, Grade 3 on Forces and Motion, and Grade 4 on Rocks and Minerals. Mike will conduct two separate one-hour sessions on Electricity/ Magnetism and Optics for each Grade 5 classroom. The overall program reinforces the importance of applying scientific inquiry with real word applications.
