Earthworm habitats made by our Storybook Science students

Earthworm habitats – cool!!

Kindergarten – Grade 2. New: Storybook Science parties!

Mythbusters isn’t just for big kids. In this class for students in kindergarten and grade 1, we’ll read a different story each week to our kindergarten and first grade scientists and then conduct hands-on science experiments to test the truthfulness or recreate certain elements of each story!

When we read Jon Scieszka’s The True Story of The 3 Little Pigs, for instance, we’ll test the power of wind – can it really blow down a house? How does air pressure work? Let’s build our own houses and see if they stand up to our air pump! For Doreen Cronin’s Diary of a Worm, we’ll each build an earthworm habitat to take home!

And guess what we’ll do when we read Bartholomew and the Ooblek?. Yup, it’ll have something to do with SLIME. (Non-toxic and mess-free, of course. Don’t worry – many of us are moms, too).

Stories and lessons will vary depending on the interests of our first grade and kindergarten scientists. And yes, we know it’s hard getting kids to talk about what they did that day. That’s why we send a note home a day or two after every class, explaining what we did, what we learned, and what’s next. Sometimes we also include photos or videos! Parents love our notes!

  • SEVEN meetings, once a week, 60 minutes per meeting. 
  • Mondays Jan 14, 28, Feb 4, 11, 25, Mar 4, 11
  • Minimum 11/Maximum: 12 students
  • Tuition is $100 per student (Materials fee of $10 is included).

Areas of exploration may include: aerodynamics, biology, physics, geology, archaeology, chemistry… and more!
