I am a Colorado-certified K-6 teacher with over 20 years of experience teaching math and science to grades K-6.  I have taught in public schools, private schools, as well as homeschool environments.  I have also homeschooled my own 4 children.  I have been teaching science classes on Outschool for almost 2 years. 
On average there is usually 1 homework assignment each week.  Homework may be a short reading from the science journal, collecting materials for an upcoming experiment, or completing an experiment that we started in class.  Completing assignments make it possible for our class time to be productive and fun.  Here is a list of probably assignments for this class:

WEEK 1:  Collect material for a friction experiment
WEEK 2:  Thought Experiment:  Eating Dinner Without Friction
WEEK 3:  None
WEEK 4:  Finish Bumper Coaster experiment, if necessary
WEEK 5:  Finish any unfinished experiments
WEEK 6:  Finish any Chain Reaction pieces
You will receive a detailed supply list upon enrollment. Please look over the list as soon as you get it, so you have time to order any necessary items before the start of class. Generally, the supplies are common, household objects. There are a few items you may need to purchase or find, including: -wooden or cardboard ramps -material to test friction (like sandpaper, cloth, etc.) -marbles -dominoes (or similar objects)
Students are constantly assessed informally throughout the class.  Written tests or teacher evaluations or grades are available upon request.  
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
