Creative Discovery Museum staffers visited Stuart School recently with 10 math learning stations that were activity-based.

Learning Centers such as Action Fractions gave parents and kids ideas about solving fraction problems through activities using common materials. Weights and balances let kids guess weights of three boxes, then weigh the boxes to see if their estimates were correct.

Eight more centers offered a chance to measure, use logic to solve issues, and count money.

Each parent and child who visited every one of the 10 learning stations had their names placed in a drawing for a yearlong membership at the Creative Discovery Museum, located in Chattanooga. Jessica McDonald and her son, Jackson Knoll, a Stuart School first-grader in Viva Addison’s classroom, is the first museum pass winner. Stuart students can look forward to two more Creative Discovery Museum visits this school year.
