Woo hoo! It's harvest time! While it's tempting to snack on all good things that come from apples and pumpkins, today is not edible -- it's scientific! CLASS STRUCTURE: -- Learners will prepare for their sink or float mini-experiment by first taking 'notes' to thoroughly explore their apples and pumpkins. With a teacher-made template, each will learn to make predictions, measure the circumference and height of both apples and pumpkins using paperclips, brainstorm and jot describing words of...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn whether small apples and pumpkins float, as well as understand the great importance of observations and note taking.
Learners will need: -- Apple and Pumpkin Observations template (teacher-made, but printed prior to class) -- one small apple -- one small pumpkin -- one sharpened pencil with an eraser -- colored pencils or crayons -- a container of paperclips -- a bucket/ bowl/ tub of water for our experiment
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment will be informal but observed in the scientific/ literacy process of our apple and pumpkin mini-experiment and best effort given to our 'notes' process.
1 hour per week in class, and no time outside of class.
