Amelia Earhart's Science Club exists to provide enrichment opportunities to 5th grade students in the area of science. During our monthly gatherings, we explore, observe, investigate, and discover new scientific concepts. We do this by integrating, reading, math, social studies, art, music, and physical routines into our group-led activities. Many of our lessons come from one of our favorite Scholastic magazines named, SuperScience. In it, we find a variety of current real-life stories in the areas of Physical Science, Life Science, Earth Science, and Space with Technology that guide many of our intellectual discussions. Together, we critically think and enhance our scientific skills while succeeding to build a better future!
