Beginning Physical Science: Motion and Energy Science Camp
Mrs. Thorn, BA-Elem. Ed
Join me to learn all about the principals of physics with hands-on learning using energy, light, magnets, simple machines and more! Let's explore the exciting world of physical science using motion and energy. #academic
US Grade Pre-Kindergarten - 1
*Note: This class has sections that meet either once a week or twice a week, to help accommodate learner's schedules. The fascinating world of physics surrounds us every day! In this class young learners will learn all about the world of Motion and Energy through guidance and self-discovery. How do things move? What are simple machines? This class will help to answer those questions, and more! In this class I will teach very important science vocabulary that correlates with motion and...
Students will be able to identify how objects move. They will also be able to identify that simple machines, magnets, heat, energy, sound, light and electricity are forms of motion and energy.
Assessments OfferedLearners will be assessed throughout each lesson by teacher observation. Learners will be expected to complete all activities and experiments during each class meeting to help establish what is being taught.
Paper and pencil, a ball (or object that can roll), 1 piece of tissue, a ruler (or long flat object similar to a ruler), a small block or rock, a small object (similar to a toy car, building block, etc.), a magnet, 5 small magnetic objects (Ex: safety pin, paper clip, nail, screw, tweezers, etc..), 5 small non-magnetic objects (Ex: toothpick, pencil, blocks, small toy, etc.) a flashlight and a small mirror.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parental guidance may be needed when students are working with small objects for our magnet activity. Many magnetic household items (safety pins, scissors, etc.) may cause harm and/or have the potential to be a choking hazard for young learners.
