Science class in Elburn for 5-7 year olds

April 28th, 2013

Science In Your Own Backyard

Who: Boys and Girls ages 5 – 7 (The class is limited to 15 students – first come first served)

What: Science Fun

When: 9:00 Am – 11:00 am

May 15, May 22, May 29, June 5, and June 12

(Please plan to attend all sessions!!!!!!!)

Where:  Elburn, IL 60119 (please contact coordinator for specific address)

Why: To provide young children with the opportunity to think like a scientist and to explore their environment.

Please email Dr. Figgins at: lfiggins@quixnet.net to reserve your student’s spot in the class. Call 630-319-7913 if you have questions.

Please plan to pay $5.00 per session at the first session ($25). The fee covers materials and the cost of hiring a K-2 specialist (Dr. Carolyn Riley) to help with these experiences.

Because the children are so young, we would like for you to stay with your student. This will provide needed support, but more importantly, allow you to follow up at home during the week – which will make the sessions even more valuable.

Materials that will be provided for your student:
Science Notebooks
Hand lens
Seeds, etc. to grow plants at home, too
Other materials as needed
