Class Experience

This class will give students a firmer understanding of the science of water. They can use their practice with the scientific method, as well as the "laboratory" they create at home, to continue to do more experiments with the laws of water physics they learn in this class.

A tub (shoe box size), large mixing bowl, or bucket of clean water 10 household items to experiment with sinking and floating. Some good examples are: a wooden building block, a rock, a plastic building block, a ping pong ball, a bouncy ball, a sponge, a shell, an apple, a wooden spoon, a metal spoon. The possibilities are endless, but please include something wooden, something metal, and something plastic. Liquid hand or dish soap Two pieces of paper Scissors to cut out boat shape
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Assessment is based on the child's interaction with the material, teacher, and other children.
