This 14-week course will provide an engaging foundation to elementary science by focusing on the amazing science of water. The class will begin by covering the characteristics of mass and volume and the practical aspects of measurement. A running theme throughout the course will be the physical and chemical properties of water. We will measure the density of water and compare this to other liquids. The density of objects relative to water and how that relates to if the objects sink or float...
I have a PhD in Microbiology but soon afterwards became certified to teach as I wanted to be with kids. I have many years experience teaching elementary and middle school science. I have taught science education classes in a teacher education department and even have taught PreK and Kindergarten science! I make my classes as hands-on, fun and rigorous as possible.
Homework will come from the Water Science Workbook Packet
Materials/Supplies: Students will need a notebook for notes, activities, and assignments. In addition, they will need to purchase or order a small number of easily-obtainable materials. They will also need to purchase a printable water science workbook packet from www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Dr-Daves-Science (author Dr. David Purvis).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be assessed on the 4 point grading scale as shown below 4.0 Exceptional 3.5 3.0 Good, satisfactory (equivalent to a B) 2.5 2.0 C-, but needs improvement 1.5 1.0 Little to no effort
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
