Robert E. Lee Intermediate 5th grade students were able to experience a day camp at Leeper Lake, which extended student learning beyond the classroom. This unique opportunity allowed the students to experience first-hand the Life Science learning objectives covered in the classroom.
Earlier this year, Lee Intermediate was chosen to participate in a scientific study conducted by Texas A&M University. The name of the study is Project LISTO (Literacy-Infused Science Using Technology Opportunity). The idea behind the study is to support students' learning of science by paying particular attention to vocabulary acquisition. The study supplies all the curriculum which is aligned to the TEKS as well as lab equipment, laptops for the teachers, tablets for student use, professional development for the teachers and other support.
