Here you will find helpful links related to the topic(s) we are covering in science. I will also upload vidoes, pictures of students working on science activities/projects, and any assignments students may have due.
Students will have a test over life cycles on Friday, November 3rd. A study guide will be sent home with students on Friday, October 27th. Please, study this with your child.
This Friday, September 29th, we will be having our science test over Force and Motion. Students brought home a study guide on Friday, September 22nd.
We will also begin studying life cycles of plants and animals.
We will finish our study of force and motion with looking at the invisible force that magnets have. Next week we will begin our culminating activity on force!
This week we will continue study force and motion. During our study this week we will look at how force causes an object to change motion, and how mass (weight) also plays a big part in it.
Last week we began studying force and motion. Students made "hoppers" and learned how the rubberband placed pressure (pushing) on the paper to make it "hop." Students also learned about how tug-of-war is more than just pulling. We often use our feet to push on the ground/floor to help us have control when playing this game.
We will continue to look at force and motion this week and in the weeks to come. Our ultimate goal is to design a rollercoaster and discuss the force and motion used in those!
We will be learning the difference between lunar and solar eclipses.
Reminder there will be NO school on Monday, August, 21st. This will be a NTI day. Students are encouraged to enjoy the eclips with their families. Students must complete the NTI packet sent home and return them on Tuesday, August 22nd to be counted present for Monday.
We're going to be learning a lot of awesome things this year in science!
