Integrated Learning Study in First Grade

This multidisciplinary project allows us to get to know and appreciate one another’s cultures, families and backgrounds. For math, it gives us a personal connection to the study of measurement and comparing measurements. In Social Studies, we will be using the baby’s wants and needs to study economics. all this information was synthesizing in the writing of baby books, which coincided with their non-fiction writing unit.
The first grade integrated baby study continued in Design Lab. Students followed the Engineering Design Process to create a stroller or cradle for their babies. Everyone was given the same supplies and they worked as a team to design, test and improve their design until the team felt it met their baby’s needs.
