Grissom Junior Math Explorers 

Little Explorer

Curriculum:

The topics for the lessons support the newly updated Alabama State Course of Study. During each lesson, students will be working with manipulatives, drawing on white boards, working in groups to solve problems, and playing games. We plan for this to be a fun, engaging, hands-on experience for the students.
