For students graduating 1st-3rd grade in ’20-‘21 school year (curriculum ranges 3rd to 5th grade)

Date: Week 3, July 26-30
Time: 1-2:30pm
Instructor: Mr. Vande Guchte

Ever wonder what causes blizzards and why they seem so rare?  Have you ever thought about what makes a hurricane a hurricane and not just a strong tropical storm?  Does learning about tornadoes and the fact that they can be miles wide interest you?  Then come join us as we take an in depth look at several types of severe weather, their causes, and the destruction they can leave behind.  In this course, students will guide some of their own learning through inquiry-based research on these severe types of weather!  Students will collaborate with their peers, generate researchable questions, complete their own research, and create a project to share their learning with the class. By the end of the week, students will have a new understanding of the severe types of weather faced around the globe!
