In this unit students distinguish between mixtures and compunds by conducting several tests. The unit stresses the importance of carefully recording experimental results and making inferences and predicitons from those results.
What's the Matter
This unit provides students the opportunity to investigate properties of matter (molecules and atoms), including physical and chemical changes of matter.
Guide to the Galaxy
In this unit, students will travel through our solar system to discover the relationships of the Earth and other objects in the solar system. Through interactive activities, students will learn about the lunar cycle, rotation, revolution, gravity and much more!
Bones, Muscles, and Brains
This unit helps students understand the relationships between structures and functions of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems through several activities, including an extensive owl pellet investigation!
May the Forces Be With You
Through a series of hands-on activities, students explore the relationship between force and motion. Investigations focus on Newton’s Three Laws of Motion, principles of gravity and friction, simple machines in everyday life, and the forces of flight.
