Kindergartners at the International School at Dundee (ISD) learned about the five senses through hands-on experiments during a recent visit from High Touch High Tech.
The “Let’s Make Sense” presentation augmented their current science curriculum with experiments such as holding flashlights up to the eyeball to see the pupil dilate and enlarge, smelling different balloons with flavoring in them and using sandpaper to describe different forms of touch.
The International School at Dundee was authorized in July of 2003 as an official International Baccalaureate school. ISD is one of less than 200 IB Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) authorized schools in the US, and one of only a few elementary schools in Connecticut to receive the IBPYP accreditation. ISD offers programs for students from kindergarten through fifth grade.
