Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will demonstrate understanding of K-2nd grade science standards, including life, earth, and physical science topics. Students will explore what it means to be a scientist and what it is to follow a procedure when investigating in a scientific fashion. Students will understand the needs of animals and plants, how they meet those needs, the role their specific habitat plays on that process, and how animals and plants affect their environment positively and adversely. Students will also make observations and come to understand the effect sunlight has on the Earth and discover patterns to the sun, moon, and stars. Students will explore the weather and how it can affect Earths landforms. Students will also discover what a natural resource is and how humans can protect them. Students will also discover the properties of various materials and matter phases and what they are best used for and how they can be changed and classified. Students will also learn about the force of gravity and other pushes and pulls how simple machines can make the work load lighter. Students will lastly, learn about light and sound and how they can be used to communicate over long distances. 
I have taught early elementary science concepts in my local homeschool co-op for the last seven years.  Exploring the world through the eyes of a young learner and discovering how things work,  and work together,  is truly something I never take for granted.  I have also taught my own children through these grades and explored theses same concepts with them amidst their wonderment. 
Students will have a few experiments that spill over into days between class meetings should they choose to attend multiple classes. 
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 supply lists will be sent at the start of the week before it or upon registration.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners will be informally assessed using various methods such as questioning and games.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
In discussing animals and plants,  death and reproduction will be brought up.
We will be using lots of craft and science tools, such as glue, toothpicks, scissors, etc. Students will need to know safety procedures for using these types of tools. 
We will be making observations about the sun. Students may need to be reminded not to look directly at the sun.
