Chicago Parent: Exploring with Mr. Reynolds

May 7, 2020

Exploring with Mr. Reynolds featured in Chicago Parent Events.

Exploring with Mr. Reynolds is a creative problem-solving program for Grades 2-6 where students can explore their ideas and investigate the world around them. Each day, Mr. Reynolds inspires curiosity and home-based exploration for students in their homes all over the world. Students will be invited to learn about ideas, explore problems and materials and apply their knowledge. Filmed from his own home in Colorado, students can join Mr. Reynolds on a daily journey of discovery, making and creative problem-solving. I wonder what ideas and problems we will explore with Mr. Reynolds today!

Event Cost: Free.

Event Times: 2-3 p.m. Mondays-Fridays.
