Learning Labs

For the 2016-2017 JLC Year Learning Labs will be divided up by trimesters. Each trimester, the JLC will provide 2 choices for Kitah Gimmel and Dalet (3rd and 4th grade) students and 2 choices for Kitah Hay and Vav (5th and 6th grade) students.

Some examples of Learning Labs that students enjoyed this past year were: In the Costume Design of the Torah lab students learned the process of costume design, including designing their own costumes, while doing a deep investigation of the Torah and specific figures who have helped to shape Jewish tradition and lifestyle. In a lab entitled Muscle Tov students gained an understanding of the connections between Jewish practice and sports and participated in a study of Jewish themes and practice of different sports activities like, football and basketball. In our ever so popular Cooking Lab students engaged in a variety of cooking techniques while being taught about Jews from around the world and connections to Jewish themes and holiday. All of our Learning Labs are an exciting and a terrific opportunity for students to gain some new skills and knowledge! Stay tuned for our first trimester of Learning Lab selections coming this fall...

Sign ups for Learning Labs are coming soon!
