Full STEAM Ahead to Mr. McKenzie's Virtual Classroom!

Remember to sit on the color square that matches your seat and use your level 0 VV when entering and exiting the classroom.  Let's make it a 4-HAWK day!  iPad

If you miss spending time in the STEAM Lab every week and his virtual classroom just isn't the same, you should head over to Mr. McKenzie's YouTube channel instead.  He has been recording read-aloud texts and sharing a short STEAM challenge at the end of some of the stories so our HAWKS can build and create with items they have around their house.

What do ice cream, Apple and STEAM have in common?  They are a few of Mr. McKenzie’s favorite things! While it's probably no surprise that Mr. McKenzie loves all things Apple and his favorite inventor is Steve Jobs, did you know his favorite quarantine treat has been ice cream? He may or may not be on a first name basis with the staff at his local ice cream shop, Two Scoops! Check out Mr. McKenzie using his new iPad and Apple Pencil that he got to support his at-home learning; he is certainly a digital age learner!

Mr. McKenzie has been reading lots of books, going for walks in the neighborhood with his dog, Leo, and even turned his terrace into an outdoor movie theater during his time at home! Although he misses his students, friends and family, he has taken this time to learn about new strategies and resources that he can bring back to the STEAM Lab.  Watch out HAWKS - when you come back to school, the STEAM Lab is going to be even more HAWKtastic!

Share a short video of a completed STEAM challenge on Mr. McKenzie’s FlipGrid (password is ntesSTEAM.) or send him an email and let him know your favorite ice cream flavor!
