Middle School Science Buddies

 

 

Our Middle School students are partnering with the Kindergarten students as science buddies. Once a week, for 5 weeks, the 5th-7th graders will be meeting with their Kindergarten friends as the Ks explore their 5 senses. Besides the academic benefits, there are social emotional benefits for both the younger and the older buddies in this type of cross age connection. The relationship skills needed to work outside their age group encourages empathy and understanding. There is a need for both buddies to listen, cooperate and communicate effectively.
