PARISHSTEM

ParishSTEM has been recognized as a model for the purposeful integration of STEM components across an entire PreK-12 program. Few schools nationally offer as rich an array of integrated STEM activities (interactive labs, activities, projects and enrichment classes experienced by all Parish students), co-curricular experiences in robotics, and after-school programming through ParishEXTEND as we do through ParishSTEM.

From life cycles to math lessons, Parish 2nd graders grow their minds at the Dallas Arboretum

As 2nd graders at Parish Episcopal School boarded the buses bound for the Dallas Arboretum on October 26, spirits were high and math and measurement skills were at the ready. (Photo Gallery by Wiley Williams)

Although temperatures were at record highs for this time of year, students had fun exploring the Children’s Adventure Garden and learning about life cycles from an Arboretum educator. They then took the time to visit the various sections of the Adventure Garden watching for and “studying” the different life forms they discussed during the lesson. Many students took a trip through The Amazing Secret Garden, enjoying “getting lost” and finding each other in the maze.

Next up, students trekked to the main gardens to put their math skills to the test with some special “Pumpkin Math.” Measuring the circumference and stem lengths of the pumpkins, students determined from their measurements which pumpkin (from the ones they chose to measure) won the game. Many of the groups helped each other lift and turn the pumpkins that were a little larger than what one 2nd grader can manage alone – with some of the pumpkins coming in at a whopping 56” around!

“That’s the biggest pumpkin I’ve ever measured,” said Bella. “I can’t even lift it!”

Second graders spent some down time in the shade with their classes for a picnic lunch and exerted a little extra energy playing in the Walk in the Clouds treehouse.

When asked his favorite part of the trip, one second grader, Ryan, commented “all of it,” while another, Scarlett, was a bit more specific citing the frogs, waterfall and treehouse.

While their feet were moving a bit slower as they climbed aboard the buses headed back to School, the excitement of their experience remained.

Activity in the Little Den

3rd grade religion classes are building a full sized model of the Ark of the Covenant and 10 Commandments. Students have used their measuring skills, learned to use a drill and collaborated to design the Seraphim that adorn the top of the Ark. Retired Mechanical Engineer Mr. Makins visited campus each week to assist Mrs. Ross with the project.
