I have been a certified teacher for almost 8 years. I have two Master's degrees, one in education, and I enjoy sharing my knowledge and seeing students grow. I have taught in the classroom and for the largest charter in the US, and I have learned various methods of teaching. I have worked with all types of learning styles, so I am more than qualified to teach this class.
There will be weekly homework to go with the lessons we have covered.
You will need random supplies throughout the section. I will post an updated list of supplies at the start of class and remind you each week what will be needed for the following week. This class is hands on. Here is the supply list which you will also get once class begins. SUPPLIES Week 2 – Chemical Reactions Supply List 1st experiment Supplies • 1 Egg • 1 Cup or Glass (large enough to hold your egg and vinegar) • Vinegar (distilled or apple cider will work) 2nd Experiment Supplies • Empty water or soda bottle (cut top off) - 16oz Bottle is Recommended • An extra cup (needs to be normal size drinking cup) • Large bowl • Large tray or pan to go UNDER the bowl • Spoon to stir • Towel or paper towels • Measuring cups and spoons (1 Cup and 1 Tablespoon) • Hydrogen Peroxide (1 Cup or MORE) • Dry Yeast (can be found online or at the store) THIS IS NEEDED - You need 3 TABLESPOONS at least. • Dish soap of any kind • Average Temp Water - NOT COLD • Food color (OPTIONAL - any color and you can use two) Week 4 - Energy Thermal Energy Experiment • Ice (any kind works and you can keep in freezer until experiment time) • Two bowls • Latex Balloon (large is fine) • Empty water bottle - Needs to be thinner plastic. This won't work with think water bottles. • Water (we will put hot water in one and ice water in the other when we do the experiment at the end of class) Week 5 - Waves Light Experiment Supplies • Clear glass • Water in another container • Small plate or saucer • Penny Sound Experiment Supplies • Clear glass • Water in another container (they can use the same from the previous experiment) • Plastic straw • Scissors Week 6 – Electricity Static Experiment Supplies • Salt • Pepper • Plastic Spoon Week 10 – Organs Part 1 Heart Experiment Supplies • 3 Bottles with lids • Water (Approx. 32 oz or a quart) • Playdough or clay (any color or kind) • 4 straws with bendable sections • Red food dye (optional) 1 lid needs 1 hole in the middle and another lid needs 2 holes in it or a larger hole. Use a nail and hammer to create these. Have parents help you. That is the easiest way. The holes must be large enough for the straw to fit. Week 11 – Organs Part 2 Lung Experiment Supplies • Empty water bottle (do not use a thick bottle – we have to cut the bottle so thinner is better) • Two regular balloons (larger is better – do not get the small balloons) • Scissors Week 13 – Biomes There is not an in class experiment but the students are going to be tasked with creating a Biome Box if they choose to. If so, they can use anything and show them in the following class. Week 14 – Plants Planting Supplies • Jars or containers for your plants (mason jars work well for this- but something with a drain hole in the bottom is better) • Soil (You can get this at a store or from your yard - the better the soil the better they will grow) • Spoon (or something to dig with and put dirt into your containers) • Seeds (choose from the following) o Calendula (flower) o Marigold (flower) o Morning Glory (flower) o Radish (vegetable) o Carrot (vegetable but needs deeper potting containers) o Onion (vegetable) o Parsley (herb) o Basil (herb) o Mint (herb) Week 15 – Plate Tectonics and Landforms Plate Tectonic Experiment • 3 to 5 hand towels or washcloths Students will also be tasked with creating a landform diorama of any landforms they want. They can use any materials they want or have and they can show these in the next class. Week 16 – Rocks, Weathering, Erosion Erosion Experiment • Jar with lid or bottle • Bowl • 2 Peppermints or hard candies • 2 M&Ms or Skittles • 2 Gummy Candies of some kind • Water Students will also be able to show and talk about any rocks or gemstones they have collected. We will do this at the end of class. Week 17 – Fossils Students will also be able to show and talk about any fossils they have collected. We will do this at the end of class. There is no experiment but they should bring things related that they want to show.
Student will turn work in if needed to me via email.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
