Travel the world on adventures looking for the elusive Carmen Sandiego. We will take a mystery adventure to London, Tokyo, Brazil, Dubai, and Sydney. In each country we will learn about the culture, highlights of what makes each country special, taste their food, and discover what special treasure Carmen would like to recover/steal. Follow the clues to see where Carmen turns up next.

10:15 a.m. Coding with Ozobots – Class 1202 (Christy Gardner)

We will work with Ozobots Bit & Evo all week, create mazes, problem solve using task cards, have Ozobot races, and design outfits for their bots. That is just the beginning. We will tell stories with our bots, work on mapping skills, preplanning movements, and how to fix mistakes. If students have their own Ozobot, they may bring it, but not necessary. Ozobots will be provided.

1:30 p.m. Exploration+Discovery=Science – Class 1203 (Anni Reinking)

Every day will be a new discovery as we experiment with all things science. We will engage in the scientific method starting with observations about the world around us. We’ll test our predictions with hands-on activities and science experiments as we explore topics in chemistry, biology and physics. With a few supplies and some ingenuity we’ll all be mad scientists for a week!
