June 21 STEAM Stars: Importance of Water, Cloud Formation and Rainforests

Fun activities during our STEAM Stars today at Doyle Library providing information, cool videos and fun scientific experiments surrounding cloud formation, the importance of water to our lives and the devastating losses of rain forest habitats around the world.

Each child created their own working cloud formation with colors to exemplify the evaporation, condensation and precipitation cycles of the earth.

Another creative and informative project included decorating and formulating each child's own rain stick, which they each took home to remind them of the important rain forest lessons from the class.







June 14 STEAM Stars: Created grass heads to study how vegetation prevents erosion and created bird viewers

We studied the importance of irrigation, grass, and vegetation to preventing erosion during our last STEAM Stars. We studied birds that have habitats near or in water and the Alton Dam and Locks Interpretive Center. Each child created and decorated a grass head planter with watering and growing schedule. Each child also created and decorated their own bird watcher to be able to focus clearly on birds in their habitats.
