Conant Elementary School

As an IB Primary Years Programme school, Conant Elementary "focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside." Our students participate in project-based learning that reflects the PYP philosophy of an integrated curriculum and incorporates 21st Century skills, global-mindedness, and the Common Core State Standards. We utilize inquiry-based instructional practices that build on children's natural curiosity and encourage students to use critical thinking skills, reflect on their learning and compassionately develop solutions for real-world problems.

Conant School Mission

To foster inquiry and innovation while preparing active citizens to participate in a global community.

Making a Snowman Without Snow!

Second graders in Mrs. MacLeod's at Conant Elementary are learning about the different states of matter and how they can change. Students created a snowman out of ice and named it Icy. They watched the snowman throughout the day and noticed it slowly melting. After 6 hours in a warm classroom, it still had not melted all of the way. The next morning, something happened - the snowman was a liquid! The students put it back in the freezer, and a few hours later...the snowman was back!
