YouthQuest students from all sites took a group field trip to see the Midland Loons play baseball on April 21. Students went on a private tour of the stadium, enjoyed lunch and the baseball game. Some students were even brought onto the field and one lucky student made the first pitch.
Students at Eisenhower Elementary learn their times tables while participating in a fun activity. Students stand in a circle with their hands on top of each other’s and sing along to their times tables (one and one is two, two and two is four…) and if they can’t answer the multiplication question before their hands are clapped, they lose. Learning guides at Eisenhower have noticed students memorizing their times tables so they are better prepared to win.
Bentley students are creating their own comic books in Comic Book Club. Students created main characters and developed the setting for their comics. By creating comics, students are able to express their creativity.
Second-grade students at Dye Elementary are learning about shapes, angles and vertices in day school. To extend their learning during YouthQuest, students were given marshmallows and pretzels to make various shapes such as prisms or cubes. And at the end of the activity, students were allowed to eat their shapes.
YouthQuest is made possible through the generous support of the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation and 21st Century Community Learning Centers.
