Worksheets, Puzzles and Games
These are some of the worksheets used in Jefferson Lab's BEAMS program. In the BEAMS program, classes of 5th and 6th grade students are exposed to the Lab's scientific environment. For two consecutive days during school hours, classes of 5th grade students and their teachers participate in these science and math activities conducted with Jefferson Lab staff. The students return to the lab in the 6th grade for additional activities which reinforce their 5th grade experience.
