“Design Your Dream Home” is offered to help students understand (and enjoy) the relationship between math and design as it relates to the home building process. This class presents skills learned in the regular curriculum (measuring, estimating, planning, and problem-solving) in a fun and stress free environment. Grades 4-6, facilitated by Mr. Jacob Talbot.
LCEF purchased a duck egg incubator for Grade 5. As part of the Life Cycle curriculum, students will observe and keep record of the hatching of eggs in their science notebooks. Facilitated by Mrs. Debra Lambert
The LCEF supports the mission of The Nature Conservancy and the Sakonnet Preservation Association to promote and provide educational programs for WMS students at Dundery Brook Greenway Trail.
WMS teachers and students will soon have access to an outdoor classroom setting, nature trails and hands-on environmental/science programs West of the school grounds. This environmental programming will not only bring science to life for Little Compton children, but will also complement Rhode Island’s new Environmental Literacy Plan that integrates critical environmental and science learning into the school curriculum.
Students in grades six, seven and eight will once again work together as part of the WMS Lego Robotics Team that will compete in the 10th Annual FIRST Lego League Challenge at Roger Williams University in January 2011. This year’s challenge directly correlates to the science curriculum of students as they explore the Magnets and Motors Kits as well as Energy, Machines and Motions Kit
The Little Compton Education Foundation has received a Wish List request for a teacher pack of 10 Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculators priced at $1,080. Middle School students will need these graphing calculators in September, when they begin studying a new math curriculum called “Impact Math”
