This trip offered students the ability to see science in real life. Fourth graders are learning about food chains, food webs, and also if animals are carni- vore, omnivore or herbivore. This trip was a great way to see different animals in their habits. (Courtesy of April Arp) On September 13, Samuel Hubbard Elementary inducted 25 fifth graders into the Junior Beta Club. The purpose of Junior Beta Club is to promote the ideals of character, service and leadership among elemen- ~ tary and secondary school students, to reward meritorious academic achievement and to encourage and assist students in continuing their education after high school. New members are Bradley Acosta, Jason Anderson, Lindsey Anderson, Mary Ella Andrews, Taylor Black, Nefertiri Brown, Quanterrious Brown, Cayden Burnette, Christopher Burns, Marissa Clements, Nicole Brown, Brooklyn Fleckenstein, Sam Hat- tell, Ryan Hughley, Antonio Jones, Josiah Knight, Aliyah Mays, Jalen McCord, Caden Mullis, Thomas Ross, John Wyatt Sanders, Addyson Shearer, Autumn Smith, Penn Tyler and Connor Yates.

They have melted chocolate chips, tested insulators, cooked pancakes and designed solar ovens. These kids have had their share of experience with heat. It is fun to learn new things, but it is more exciting to experiment with them! STEM has become effortless because it is so natural to integrate into teaching. The kids get so excited whether doing STEM in the lab or in the classroom. (Courtesy of Amy Carter) Kindergarten students have been learning about sci- ence. We have found out science is all around us and many things we are interested in are related to science! We have read books about scientists and what they do. We visited the STEM lab to explore tools that scien- tists use every day. We will use these tools throughout the year. The second grade students at Hub- bard Elementary are proud to be S.T.E.M. Certified and are on their way to becoming the next genera- tion of engineers. Abel Jones from Mr. Baker's class is working with classmates and learning how an in- cline can be changed due to erosion. Water and wind change the face of the world as we know it. This is a problem that future engineer Abel was attempting to solve. (Courtesy of Daryl W. Baker) First graders in Mrs. DeMichiel class at Hubbard Elementary were introduced to the STEM lab earlier this year. Students learned about different science tools and had the opportunity to explore with each one. They enjoyed picking up beads with tweezers, inspecting items through magnifying glasses, measuring sand using mea- suring cups, measuring objects with rulers, and weighing items o0ibalcmcing scales. It was a great way to get students excited about STEM educatibn'iand for them to learn how scientists use each tool' We look forward to using these science to01s in future STEM investigations.

After reading several versions of"The Three Little Pigs'; our students were given the challenge of build- ing a house for the pigs using 12 gumdrops and toothpicks. The students had to state the problem for pig one and pig two, then draw their design for a house. They used previous learning of 2D and 3D shapes to help them with their design. The children worked with a partner to build their house. Then the "Big Bad Wolf" tried to blow it down. If their house fell, they had to redesign. It was a fun learning experi- ence that incorporated literature, math, science and teamwork!
