In the Semester 1 of this General/Integrated science class, learners will be studying cells, living things, earth processes, our solar system, and atoms. This 15-week class which covers one semester will meet once a week and students will also be expected to complete homework/labs at home. This is appropriate for 4th grade students or those who are 8-10 years of age. Get ready for fun activities and experiments! Paper and pencil will need to be available for each class. As an introduction to...
Students will be able to explore through lecture, experiments, demonstrations, homework, and discussion the three fields of General Science....Life science, Earth science, and Physical science.
I was a middle school science teacher for 10 years. I have also homeschooled my daughter for 8 years. As a public school teacher, I taught Earth Science, Chemistry, Physical Science, Zoology, Biology, and more to hundreds of students. Science is a passion of mine and I find performing experiments both fascinating and illuminating when learning new scientific facts! In this class, students will have ample opportunity to perform their own experiments to reiterate the information they learn in class. I have my Bachelor's degree in Biology/Pre-Med and a Master's in Healthcare Administration.
Homework is assigned each week at the end of class. Homework will be posted in the classroom. Homework may be a worksheet or experiment. Please allow 1-2 hours for homework each week.

A letter grade will be given for each homework assignment turned in. Grades and homework are not mandatory but will be given upon request or when work is turned in. The parent will receive a teacher feedback report on the student's progress at the end of the course.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
All experiments utilize household materials. Some experiments may be messy. Some also may require the use of scissors to cut something. Your learner must be mature enough in your estimation to use scissors or have an adult available to help. Please read homework beforehand to determine if experiments need to be performed outside to save the house from a mess :-) YouTube video sections may also be used during screensharing via PowerPoint. I will not be sharing any links to YouTube videos.
