In STEAM class with Ms. Waldron 3rd graders built paper bridges using two pieces of regular copy paper and two small pieces of tape. Students were amazed at the weight bearing capacity of such simple but strong structures and certainly pushed them to the limit by increasing the load. Balance and dispersal of weight was compared to balancing on one leg vs. two astride.

Happy Fall Harvest from 1D, Mrs. Hines’ class! Students learned about the history of using a cornucopia to celebrate the fall harvest and decorate for Thanksgiving. Then, discovered perspective and created a still life using oil pastels, and a water color wash. The students also created ‘zentangles’ and ‘thankful’ turkeys.
Feeling 'thankful' to teach through an arts integrated curriculum and at Ashley River Creative Arts!

In Ms. Bergen’s art class, 5th graders created a folded work of art with an “exploding beaker!” During the art making process, they hypothesized what would happen when salt and rubbing alcohol mixed with their liquid watercolor paint. Then, students experimented with their art and these materials. After, students reflected on their findings.

5th grade students performed a fun experiment called "Black Magic” in STEAM with Ms. Waldron using chromatography (a technique for separating mixtures). Materials included coffee filters, non-permanent black markers,and water. They made and tested their hypotheses and then ran their own experiments by changing the variables (such as using different colored markers, changing the shape drawn, saturation level, etc.).

First grade students in Mrs. Hines’ class created state symbol pop art inspired by artist Jasper Johns, who spent much of his early life in South Carolina. Take a look at their art making process and products!

Ms. Beaudrot’s first grade class is learning about South Carolina state symbols, including the state fruit and state bird. This afternoon, students enjoyed peach popsicles before going on a bird watching walk to spot and hear a Carolina Wren.

Our Kindergarten, Child Development, and younger Exceptional Needs class had a blast at our ARCA Pumpkin Patch. The children rotated through 7 pumpkin centers. These included a scavenger hunt, acting out the pumpkin life cycle, pumpkin relays, eating a pumpkin cookie, making a pumpkin picture, and of course picking a pumpkin to take home. Special thanks to our teachers for providing our students with this fabulous opportunity! 🎃
