As a part of their School Outreach Assembly Programs, the Science Museum of Minnesota was recently at Cohasset. The School Outreach Assembly programs are aligned and correlated to state and national standards/benchmarks. They are specifically designed with our students’ educational needs in mind and in support of our efforts to encourage their exploration of the scientific world around them.
Cohasset Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students participated in a program titled: “Wonders of Science: Dinosaurs”. The program used dinosaur props and large colorful visuals to engage our students in the fun of science learning. Student volunteers helped the presenter discover and reconstruct a life-size dinosaur skeleton puzzle!
Cohasset 3rd and 4th grade students participated in a program titled: “Solids, Liquids, and Gases”. Imagine a test tube as large as our students, into which a volunteer added a solid to a liquid. What happens when a balloon is fitted over the top? Our students were introduced to the science of chemistry through the use of some unusual demonstrations.
