Excursions through TIME offers students the opportunity to take a journey to study the Technology, Ideas, Mathematics, and Explorations that are connected to a particular time in our world. These Excursions will all have a STEAM focus.
This supplemental/enrichment opportunity has limited spaces due to the extensive nature of the topics/activities that are planned. This is a 32-week enrichment/supplemental program.
Excursions in TIME meets most Wednesdays (Grades 3-5) in Donelson, TN from September through the middle of May.
The morning sessions are focused around the academics connected to the region we are studying. The afternoon sessions are framed around technology, engineering, and art and design activities.
Each month your students take an “Excursion” to some time period in history to learn about the STEAM topics that originated there. During each of the 8 excursions students will be engaged in:
Logical reasoning experiences while investigating and working with a variety of STEAM topics,
Writing and reading about the topics they are studying,
Making interdisciplinary connections, and
Investigating the historical development of STEAM topics and the implications for their place in today’s society.
