Extraordinary Lower School Opportunities
When Country Day kindergarten students pair off to build simple machines together, it may look like play time. In fact, this type of activity is setting the foundation for the kinds of skills students will continue to develop as they tackle ever more complex learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering, arts, and math (STEAM).
"Today’s students need to develop both abstract and concrete thinking skills. We’re very excited about bringing these activities into the kindergarten classroom and we know this is preparing them not only for their future classes and courses, but also for a workplace that values these kinds of skills.”
—Sherry Harris, kindergarten teacher
