This 12 week course will provide a fun and engaging approach to learning that covers the Nature of Science, Physical science, Life Science, and Earth Science. We will discover just how cool science is with opportunities to experiment, explore and engage in science play and practices. This class meets once a week to discuss being a scientist through multiple topics (listed below). My style of teaching will be both teacher led discussion on the topic with stories, vocabulary, and questions...
With simple science projects and experiments your learner will be introduced to the steps of the Scientific Method. -Making initial observations -Coming up with a question of interest based on the observations -Developing a hypothesis or prediction to go along with the question -Experimenting and testing -Gathering and recording results of tests and experiments and drawing conclusions -Sharing and discussing result We will be able to cover most of the steps pretty well just by talking about… what they think will happen.

While there is no homework for this class. Students are encourage to continue learning at home by expanding on the activities. Keeping track of results turns a science activity into an experiment. Change one variable at a time to see if the inquirys we made as a class change. Keep track of results in your journal either by writing or drawing about it. This is also a great way to practice writing,and mark making, which is an improtant step in a child's handwriting development.
Notebook or writing paper, pencil, crayons. Materials may be needed per class for the activity or experiment, they will be posted in the classroom the week prior.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
