This year we will be learning about:
Magnets- During the unit, students will explore magnets and discover their scientific properties. We will learn about: Magnetic fields, polarity, temporary vs. permanent magnets and what magnets attract/repel.
Weather- This unit will teach students how to measure and record their observations. We will take a close look at: wind, clouds, precipitation, the water cycle, tornadoes, hurricanes and more!
Plant Growth and Development- Students will be planting seeds and observing them as they grow. They will also study the anatomy of a flower and what pollination is and why it is so important.
Systems- The students will learn about interactions and systems in our every day lives. They will investigate separating a mixture of solids and the interaction between BTB and acids.
Throughout the year, we will also learn more about the scientific method.
