Earth, a Perfect Planet for Us - An Astronomy Perspective - 1:1

Early Elementary Science - Flexible Schedule Class

Geri Poarch
Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(478)
During this semester-long flexible class, early-elementary grade students will use hands-on activities, observations, and direct instruction to work through life, earth, and physical science content standards specific to K-2nd learners.

Class experience

Students will spend eight weeks learning what it means to conduct science experiments with variables in mind, using their senses to explore their world, building tools and models to solve problems. Students will also learn about the needs of plants and animals, how they meet those needs, how their habitats aid in this, and how they change their habitats. Lastly, students will learn that the sun, moon, and stars operate in predictable ways and that there is a correlation between the daylight hours and the seasons we experience. 
I have taught elementary science to my own children, as well as to many children in a home school cooperative setting for the last nine years, and most recently on Outschool. I love learning about how our world and everything in it works on the most intricate and magnificent levels. Young scientist naturally gravitate towards this type of learning as well, and there is nothing better than sharing in that with them.
There will be a projects supply list for each week. Most items will be everyday items that can be found around the house. However, some materials may require an extra purchase. The first four weeks' materials are listed below. The supply lists for weeks after that will be sent at the start of the week before it or upon registration.
