Little Chefs

4-H Project

Target Age Range: 6-12

Description: The 4-H project gives members the opportunity to direct their own learning. IIn this class students will be guided through the process of working on a 4-H project. They will choose their topic, develop a plan with goals, conduct experiments, do research, and implement their plan. At the end of the spring session participants will share their work at a project celebration event.

Pre-Requisites: To work independently participants should have basic reading and technology skills. For students who are just learning to read parental assistance will be required.

Learning Objectives:  Students will be able to:

- conduct research

-identify topics of interest

-work cooperatively

-share their learning verbally and visually

Materials Fee: $5- this will be used to give the kids a budget for their project.

What Materials will be Provided: Basic Supplies— paper, pencils, paint, etc.

Poetry Slam

Target Age Range: 6-12

Class Size: 12

Description: We will be combining poetry basics with artistic expression and an informal poetry tea-time, in order to teach children how to appreciate the written and spoken art of poetry and its many forms.  Children will keep a poetry and art journal throughout the class, and they will have the chance to learn the mechanics and the expression of poetry while enjoying a sharing and friendly experience with other students.

Pre-Requisites: Children do not need to be able to read poetry aloud, or even be willing to. For children who want to, there will be a chance, but it isn't required.  However, children will sometimes be asked to bring in a poem they've found (or written) outside of class, as well as help cooperatively in hosting our poetry tea-times (setting the table, making a centerpiece, bringing in candles, baking a special snack.)  Because this class will work to celebrate everyone's individual expression, children will need the maturity to embrace their classmates written and visual work and refrain from poking fun at something that another child may have worked hard on and/or truly value.

Learning Objectives: Children will learn basic poetry mechanics, and they will understand how the verbal can become the visual in many different ways.

Materials Fee: $12
