1st - 4th grade

Discovery learning is still emphasized with  elementary students, as classes become more specialized. Students in this grade level should be able to read and perform basic writing skills. Some classes will require weekly homework assignments. Students may need to purchase books or additional resources.


ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

Art with the Masters

Tuesdays, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

Students will be inspired with hands-on art activities that explore the styles and techniques used by famous art Masters. In this early elementary-level art class, childhood creative curiosity will be nurtured, and learning will look like play! Students will be introduced to the elements and principles of design, exposed to a variety of art materials, encouraged to experiment, learn by doing, all while acquiring the skills and techniques needed to create their own original works of art!

Instructor: Patricia Storey

Science Discoveries (Science Sleuths, the sequel!)

Tuesdays, 12:45 pm – 3:15 pm

Discover this introductory science course for elementary-aged students, building on skills and concepts learned in our previous year’s Science Sleuths class, but also serving as a stand-alone course that welcomes new sleuths! Students will use the HMH Science Dimensions Curriculum, learning scientific concepts through being curious and asking questions about the natural world, making observations, and sharing ideas. Skills are learned through hands-on activities, simple experiments, and inquiry-driven explorations. Topics include: the scientific method, rocks and minerals, earth science, weather, ecosystems, and properties of matter. In all our studies of the natural world and its processes, we will be drawn to the praise of our Creator whose creation bears witness to Him!

Journey Through Art

Wednesdays, 12:45 pm - 3:15 pm

In this combined elementary and middle school art class, students will set off on an imaginary journey to different countries. There they will visit different artists and learn about their styles, art movements, and art techniques. Students will be taught drawing skills to help them become art journal keepers. They will be guided on their journey and use the skills they learned to create their own original artwork.
