John Street School’s third and fourth graders participated in an educational, immersive experience with Submerge Storytelling, a local company founded by Cory Levine that offers engaging curricula and enrichment for grades K-5, from Feb. 12-16.

The students were tasked with exploring Emmy’s bedroom, a Submerge Storytelling character, to investigate for clues and codes to predictions and solve problems. Emmy is a middle school student and science prodigy, who has been hired by NASA to find lithium minerals inside Saturn’s Rings to help mitigate an energy predicament on Earth. The students were tasked with assisting Emmy, along with eight other astronauts headed to Saturn, by using the scientific method to solve problems on the spaceship. The school’s auditorium stage was transformed into the bedroom, equipped with multiple objects such as mineral rocks, Star Wars merchandise and a surfboard, among others.

As part of the experience, students must write their observations in complete, detailed sentences with proper punctuation.

During Math and Science Experience Week, held from Jan. 29-Feb. 2, John Street School students participated in hands-on activities and experiments.

Kindergarten students learned about dinosaurs from a representative from the Long Island Science Center. They viewed both replicas and actual fossils of dinosaur eggs, teeth and a skull. The students also saw how large a dinosaur footprint would be, stepping on the print together as a class to represent the size. Using a dinosaur tooth, each student created their own tooth replica to take home.

Throughout the week, each grade-level participated in a different math/science activity.
