Welcome to Marblehead Elementary! This is an exciting time for our school. We are in the process of developing a focus on Environmental Literacy as a unifying theme for our academic studies. As a STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) school, students are engaged in a cross-curricular study of human interaction with the natural environment in the interests of solving complex problems. Our students develop an understanding that environmental challenges face every aspect of society. Through problem-based learning opportunities, students gain the skills needed to help solve these complex problems through cooperation and negotiation with different and often competing stakeholders. Reading, Writing, Math, Social Studies are taught authentically through lessons and activities that focus on human interaction with the environment. In partnership with The Ocean Institute, the program combines indoor and outdoor classroom lessons, hands-on laboratory investigations and stewardship of the school garden and outdoor classroom as a microcosm of the larger environment. The goal of this program is to help students develop 21st century skills that will translate not just into an introduction to careers such as Environmental Engineering, Geology or Environmental Law, but also to develop responsible citizenship. COME GROW WITH US!
