- Oct. 3, 10, 17, 24
In this class, we will conduct experiments to learn about the brain, the nervous system, the skin and sight. We will do experiments with your own body (don’t worry, nothing hurts). We’ll even dissect a brain! Don’t miss out!
Expanding World of Gases
- Oct. 31, Nov. 7, 14, 28 (no class Nov. 21- Thanksgiving)
How do you crush cans by using only gas pressure? Can you break a stick with only 1 sheet of newspaper? Do hot gases act the same as cold gases? Do hot and cold gases take up the same amount of space? We’ll lift you off the ground with only plastic baggies and straws – hey you can even lift your teacher! How do you get an egg stuck in a jar and remove it using only gas pressure? If that’s not enough, you’ll build your own hot air balloon and we will fly them on the last day of class. Don’t miss out on the fun!
- Dec. 5, 12, Jan. 9, 16 (no class Dec. 19, 26, Jan. 2)
- Become a novice meteorologist in just 4 short weeks! You will make your own weather station to take home. We’ll discover how a thermometer measures the speed of particles through experimenting with the thermometers you will make in class. Learn the difference between Fahrenheit and Celsius through measuring samples in class. How do clouds form? Why do clouds have different names? We’ll make our own clouds and see if clouds form better in clean or dirty air. Discover why weather patterns form, which clouds bring rain, and how tornadoes form. Does warm air rise or fall? What about cold air? How does that make our weather? What is lightning and how is it formed? We’ll have clouds, rain, dew, wind, tornadoes and lightning right inside our classroom! Bring an umbrella for this one!
- Jan. 23, 30, Feb. 6, 13 (no class Feb. 20-President’s week)
Learn physical and chemical properties of matter and apply this information to discover the identity of unknown substances. Become a real chemist! This class is all Hands-On!
- Feb. 27, Mar. 6, 13, 20 (no class Apr. 3- Spring Break)
How do you define life? What is the difference between living and non-living objects? What are the differences between solids, liquids and gases? What causes some things to float while others sink? Let’s find the answers through hands-on experiments!
The Amazing World of Water
- Mar. 27, Apr. 10, 17, 24 (no class April 3rd)
Water is one of the most abundant resources on earth. What is it made of and how does it function? You’ll be amazed at how much you do not know about this substance that constantly surrounds us. We’ll learn about why it is important to protect the water on our planet and we’ll even perform some water tests by designing and using our own water filters. Come join the fun
May 1, 8, 15, 22
A few of the questions we will explore are: What is the difference between an earthworm and a mealworm? What does a snail eat? What is an earthworm’s favorite spot, light or dark, moist or dry? We’ll have all hands-on activities to learn about the behavior of these and other critters.
