Students will engage in weekly field trips and daily physical education, art projects, science experiments, and other activities focused around a central weekly theme. Through project-based learning, students will apply critical thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and self-management skills to solve real-world scenarios.

Session A: Our Wild Animal Adventure  We will go on a wild journey around the world to learn about different types of animals and their habitats. From the giraffe of the savannah to our local Nēnē Goose,  students will research all about an animal of their choice and the habitat in which they live to help them create their very own animal habitats. We will also take a field trip to Honolulu Zoo. The home of many different and amazing animals!

Session B: To Infinity and Beyond  Have you ever dreamed of going to space? Or learning the various aspects of our solar system? In this class, we will become our very own astronomers! We will learn about the different parts of our solar system, studying the planets, moon phases, and constellations. Students will also get to construct marshmallow constellations and 3D solar systems. Our local planetarium at Bishop Museum will take us on a journey through time and space.

Students will be part of a structured learning experience around a weekly theme.  Hands-on activities will explore science, art, and engineering concepts. We plan to take one or two field trips to further explore our theme.  

Session A: Riding the Waves—Light and Sound  Students will learn through hands-on activities about light and sound waves. These will include the use of art, music, photography and science. Students will learn how light helps with vision and photography by making pinhole cameras, and they will then learn how sounds are related to music by creating sand art using sound. On Friday, we will end the week with a dance party to celebrate all we have learnt about light and sound.

Session B: Where We Live—Plants and Animals  Students will learn about plants and animals by exploring nature through excursions. We will immerse ourselves in nature and learn about the interconnectedness of plants, animals, and the environment around them. We will use nature to make art but also see the art in nature. Finally, we will choose our favorite animals and give them special superpowers to adapt them to their opposite habitats. This will be displayed in a Diorama of Super Animals made by the students.
