Forced to Stick with It: Motion and Magnetism (SK0412)

 

  •  

    In this unit, students will explore the role of forces.  They will discover the impact gravity, electric, and magnetic forces have on objects in the world.  Using this knowledge, students will apply ideas to solve a real-world problem.  This is part of the Engineering Design Challenge and will task students with creating a system to propel and stop a train at specific locations using magnets

    I Will Survive: Organisms Surviving in Different Environments (SK0413)

     

  •  

    Students explore the diversity of living organisms, a significant element of a healthy environment.  Students explore changes among living things on Earth when the environment changes by exploring different fossils.  Throughout the unit, they observe and investigate how characteristics, such as living in groups, can help animals/plants around the world survive in different environments.

    Hand-Me-Down Genes: Life Cycles and Traits of Butterflies (SK0414)

     

  •  

    This unit covers the life cycle of a butterfly and then expands upon that concept.  The students will journal the development of the Painted Lady from egg until butterfly.  The kit also covers inherited vs. acquired traits and how the traits are exhibited in an organism.  Students will explore how traits can cause or lead to natural selection within a species.

    Weather Around the World: Data Trends, Water Cycle, and Weather Hazards (SK0415)

     

  • Students are introduced to the causes of weather and climate, and study how the water cycle plays an important role in a region's climate.  They begin the unit by building mystery weather tools (thermometer, hygrometer, anemometer, and barometer) and examine the tools as they learn to collect weather data.  Students will deduce, by comparing their collected weather data using scientific instruments, which mystery tool their group has created.  Throughout the unit, students collect weather data and graph their data on charts.  Students also build a water cycle model and relate their new learning of the water cycle to weather conditions.  They explore how different regions of Earth can be heated unevenly, causing specific weather patterns in different climates.  By the end of the unit, students make the connection between the effects of weather on humans and how we can predict and prepare for hazardous weather.
