Traits and Behaviors: Plants and Ants (SK0404)

 

  •  

    Students explore, sort, compare, and experience the similarities, differences, and basic needs of animals. Ants encourage careful observation using a hand lens, recording observations in words and pictures as students build on their intuitive ideas about the basic needs of animals. Students explore behaviors by the ants and other plants and animal they use to keep their young safe. Using knowledge learned, students will solve a human problem by designing a solution that mimics a plant or animal.

    Lend Me Your Hears: Discovering Sound Properties (SK0406)

     

  •  

    How are sounds made and how does sound travel from one place to another? During this unit, students will explore sounds and vibrations and relate simple terms like loud, soft, high and low to the concepts of volume and pitch. Students will make a model of a wave and learn that sound travels through air, liquids, and solids. When sound waves bounce off large, hard surfaces, they create echoes. Students will investigate echoes and learn how animals use echoes to communicate and survive.

    It's Just a Phase: Patterns in the Sky (SK0405)

     

  •  

    What objects are in the sky and how do they seem to move? During this unit, students will learn, observe, and describe the sky, as well as the concepts of patterns in the motion of Sun, moon, and stars. Through collecting data of the Sun, moon, and stars, students will be able to predict future motion and determine patterns of these celestial bodies.

    Watt's So Bright?: Discovering Light Properties (SK0407)

     

  • Students will explore the physical science concept of light, and investigate how the phenomena travels. Students will use flashlights to collect evidence of how light travels and how it interacts with different materials as they manipulate the path of light and experiment with several materials. They will design a device to help communicate with light by the concept of a lighthouse.
