Student Experiences: Miss Lee the Science Queen

Hello! My name is Kerri Lee and I am a B.Ed. Teacher Candidate in the Primary/Junior Divisions with a concentration in ACE (Artist in Community Education). I recently completed my practicum in a grade 3 classroom where I had the opportunity to teach a variety of subjects, including introductory lessons for their science unit on forces. As an educator who is passionate about the arts, I was eager to find a way to incorporate an aspect of drama or theatre into my lessons.
