Middle School Science Buddies

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.
