Distance Learning with Social Studies (Everyday Heroes:)
On board the USS Midway every crewmember made a difference. Each person aboard played a key role in making sure the ship could carry out its mission. In this program students will virtually explore the Midway to see where our “everyday heroes” used the characteristics and qualities of courage, sacrifice, dedication and helping others to complete the mission assigned to them. Students will also see how they, and others, can exhibit those same characteristics. Students will have the opportunity to design a medallion to help them remember the characteristics discussed upon completion of this virtual program.
Registration begins September 15, 2020.
Students will learn about the USS Midway, a “City at Sea”, and the special attributes needed by those who lived together in that city. Through a virtual tour, students will explore how cooperation, respect, caring and teamwork enabled the ship’s crew to live together, and how they, and others in their communities, display these characteristics of a good citizen. Students will have the opportunity to design a citizenship medallion to help them remember the characteristics discussed upon completion of this virtual program.
Registration begins October 6, 2020.
This exciting new Math program for 4th and 5th grade students allows individuals or teams to see how sailors onboard the USS Midway worked together, using math, to solve everyday challenges. After downloading an app, designed exclusively for this virtual experience on the Midway, students will be able to explore different areas of the Midway through video, audio, and augmented reality (AR) opportunities. At each stop along the way students will be challenge to solve a problem either individually or working together as a team.
Registration begins November 3, 2020.
