With so much great feedback from students and families coming in from the chain reaction project this past week of remote learning, I thought your child would enjoy having access to more opportunities to dig into the content we have covered throughout this year.
In science class, the students have been doing a lot of hands-on experiments this year to apply the concepts to real-life situations as much as possible. You can use the links below for some of the “mysteries”, as we call them, that we have covered this year. At the end of most of these mysteries are optional extensions that include articles, videos, and additional activities that the kids can use to further explore these concepts. You can let your child know that they will want to click to the very end of the mysteries until they get to the “extensions” slides to see more opportunities for experiments. If they ever would like more of these links as we continue through our learning, just let me know. We will cover three more mysteries in the energy unit before moving to our study of the human body, which has a few mysteries that we will use as well. After we cover that information in class, I would be happy to send more links. Your child should be able to access these links until June 30th of this year, after which point they will no longer work.
Unit 1: The Birth of Rocks (Rock Cycle & Earth’s Processes)
As the students hear with each mystery that we complete, “Have fun, and stay curious!”
