Science in Action!

Last week, our ACA 1st graders attended the Arizona Science Center for their first field trip of the year!

We had a number of parents and staff in attendance to ensure all students had a fun and safe time at the Science Center. Students were able to play with all of the hands on exhibits, see in person science experiement demonstrations and learn about construction, electricity, the systems of the body and so much more.

Field Trips are a very important part of the learning process for studnets because it brings learning to life! In fact, our 1st graders learned all about the different systems in our body this past quarter. They learned about the circulatory, nervous, skeletal, digestive and muscular system. It takes their learning to an entirely new level when they get to see a life size depiction of someones nervous system using blinking and glowing lights!

No to mention, it adds a whole other level of community between our parents, students and staff when they get to take a trip outside the walls of the school and have fun together!
