CEMEX partnered with local schools to provide mining workbooks geared towards elementary students that focus on Florida’s natural resources including phosphate, limestone, sand, heavy minerals, clay and peat. Workbooks have been dropped off at Lost Lake Elementary, Grassy Lake Elementary, Minneola Charter and Mascotte Charter.
CEMEX also dropped off owl pellets (for student dissection) and lessons to Minneola Charter and Cypress Ridge Elementary who were scheduled to come to their Engstrom classroom in March.
The classroom may be empty, but school’s not out! Just because Florida’s students are learning remotely, doesn’t mean they’re learning alone. We want to encourage parents to take plenty of pictures and share on Facebook to let us know how the lessons go. Teachers and parents can tag us at @CemexFloridaCarolina and include the Hashtag: #BuildingCommunityTogether.
Their At-Home Learning Curriculum Includes:
1. Map Like A Pirate
2. Fish for Learning
3. Nature Walk
4. Art from the Recycling Bin
The best part? All four lessons apply to Florida’s B.E.S.T Standards.
The At-Home Learning Curriculum can be found on CEMEX’s Lake and Hernando County Microsites. Please visit either link to access the curriculum.
