Grade 1: Making Moves with Motion
Sun and Moon have been making some moves this semester! We had a paper airplane competition and some planes made it above the rope while others below it.
We even created our very own motion song and dance.
We learned our first big science word: COLLIDE. Check out this colorful drawing.
Grade 2: Getting Energized!
Energy in the form of electricity, light, heat, and sound are now no longer being taken for granted by Huron and Ontario. They have been successfully learning what things use these forms of energy. They understand the limitations of light; go ahead, ask one of the students if light will reflect off of them or not.Here are some second graders using light to create one of mankind’s oldest games: shadow puppets
This week, we are mid-completion on our Electricity Adventure books. Parents, stay tuned as your kids will soon be authors of their very own science graphic novels!
Grade 5: Energy, energy… Where art thou?
Fifth grade has been learning all about where and how our energy works. It works all around us, it works in different ways. Here are some boys and girls showcasing their results of transforming electrical energy into thermal energy with some panda toast!
We dived deep and broke sound energy down into pieces. Here is Eason drawing the sound energy he hears in the form of a wavelength. As we moved onto the capabilities of light, Lisa showed us how light bends, or as we now call it, refracts.
Science Review Week With Teacher Faline
Students in grades 3, 4, and 6 have been reviewing for the midterm this week… but not without having a little fun while doing so! Grade 3 students learned about mammals, amphibians, reptiles, fish, and birds. They answered questions in the style of Jeopardy to earn points.
Grade 4 students learned about photosynthesis and how flowers and conifers pollinate.
Grade 6 students learned about plant and animal adaptations. Students worked hard on the review sheet, and we played some team games as means to incorporate a little fun while preparing for the test.
Great work everyone, and good luck on Monday for our Science Midterm!
