Introduces students to the basics of physics.  They experiment with the relationships between gravity, movement, inertia and mass (Physical Sciences)

$595.00

  Science Topics

1 • Why Does It Move?  - Forces affect motion and objects.
2 • The Force of Gravity - Gravity pulls objects toward the center of the Earth.
3 • The Law of Inertia - Inertia is resistance to change in motion.
4 • Mass Affects Motion - Mass and motion are directly related.

   
 

Students learn the basic properties of magnets and begin a study in magnetism.  Experiments with magnetic polarity, magnetic fields, and magnetic separation help to foster a better understanding of magnetism (Physical Sciences).

$595.00

  Science Topics

1 • Properties of Magnets - Students learn the basic properties of magnets.
2 • Magnetic Polarity - Students discover the two poles of a magnet and the relationship between them.
3 • Magnetic Fields - Students learn that a magnetic field surrounds all magnets.
4 • Magnetic Separation - Students experiment with practical methods of using magnets to separate mixtures of materials.

   
 
 

  

Introduces students to electricity, an integral part of the modern world.  They experiment with static electricity, gain an understanding of how a flashlight works and make an electromagnet and an electric motor (Physical Science).

$595.00

  Science Topics

1 • Electricity - defines electricity and investigates a flashlight.
2 • Static Electricity - defines the concept of static electricity.
3 • Electromagnets - the relationship between electricity and magnetism.
4 • Electric Motors - how an electric motor operates.

   
 
 

  

Introduces students to ecosystems and the idea that all living things are connected to their environment.  Students learn that living things depend on their environment for their survival (Life Sciences).

$595.00

  Science Topics

1 • What is an Ecosystem? - An ecosystem is the interaction of living things with their environment.
2 • Survival - Students learn that all organisms depend on their environment for survival.
3 • Natural Succession - Over time, environments and ecosystems change.
4 • Pollution Affects our Ecosystem - Pollution caused by humans affects our natural ecosystems.

   
 
 

  

Students learn that the water cycle is an essential part of all ecosystems.  By exploring the water cycle, the importance of water and its natural path is better understood (Earth Sciences).

$595.00

  Science Topics

1 • Properties of Water - Students discover that water is essential for life.
2 • States of Water Molecules - Students explore how water changes from one state to another.
3 • The Water Cycle - Students learn that the Sun's energy drives the water cycle.
4 • Water Shapes Earth's Surface - Students learn that the flow of water helps shape the Earth's surface.
