Soft sand ran through the fingers of Aquebogue Elementary School students as they participated in an interdisciplinary science, stimulation and language lesson. 

Working together, the students in Susan Leyhane’s class followed multistep instructions to make several batches of kinetic sand, which they are using for purposeful play and STEM activities. 

“The students learned while doing,” said Aquebogue Principal Bryan Miltenberg. “The messier the activity, the more fun the students have and the more engaged they become.”  

The project was supported by teaching assistant Jennifer Crosby and aides Deborah Baron, Alissa Behr and Laura Huber.
