As April arrives, our minds turn to...Science! During the week of April 20 through 27, schools across the United States will celebrate National Science and Technology Week. Plan to celebrate with some hands-on science activities.
A few days later, on April 30, plan to observe National Arbor Day. The National Arbor Foundation offers several suggestions for recognizing the day.
It's probably a busy month, but you'll probably find the Spotlight on Probability to be worth a chance. Developed by teachers, this unit of study investigates the randomness of numbers in both math class and music class.
It's STRINGtime, so Amy's off flying kites. Investigate the beauty and physics of kites with her.
As always, you'll find an excellent way to spend a minute with ME. This month, the connection between math and poetry is a reason for fun.
