Junior geologists and elementary engineers: harness earth’s extremes as we investigate its awesome powers in the form of wind, water, weather, and sunlight. We will explore our wide world and focus on earth’s energy sources and the process of engineering amazing gadgets that transform energy into useful creations.

As students build a fully-planned and intricately-designed Lego city, they also learn to govern it. Students learn about elections, laws, city planning, economics and the environment as they serve on a city council which must make key governing decisions about their city. They work on committees to design their official city flag, design their city’s currency and create a constitution of laws. Students have the opportunity to run for mayor, open their own business, debate city issues and design city buildings. Social studies, history and civics have never been so fun!

In Writing Wizards, we foster a love of writing by guiding our students to write and publish their own short novel! Using literature like Harry Potter and The Chronicles of Narnia as inspiration, each pair of students designs a fantasy world that includes major and minor characters, fantastic settings, an extended backstory and a world of wonder.  The authors use artwork and brainstorming to design plot twists and dynamic characters. Teachers guide the students, providing contextual mini-lessons on writing techniques that include the use of dialogue, detailed descriptions, sensory-rich word choice, and character development. At the end of the course, students take home their completed novel!
