Grasshoppers "Dive" into STEM with Study of the Properties of Water
I was so excited because I got to start off the 2013-2014 BUGS school year with the Grasshoppers! This year the Grasshoppers (and the Butterflies) will be studying the Properties of Water and engaging in Service Learning activities to help improve the quality of the water in the Baltimore Harbor. Our first activities were all about the Titanic and how things sink and float. Then, we learned about rainwater runoff and watersheds from Ms. Rachael Dickey. The Grasshoppers did a great job cleaning up the Duck Pond at Patterson Park and reflecting on the importance of environmental stewardship and how cleaning up in their community made them feel.
