Weekly Activities:
Modified - 05/29/2020 12:08pm Parachute Project for the week of June 1st
For this week's project we’re going to learn about the physics of parachutes! First watch Mrs. Pomi's video for directions. Then learn more about parachutes by watching the SciShow Kids video. Then try the experiment and use an observation sheet to record your results! Send us your pictures! » read more...
Modified - 05/22/2020 10:36am Seed Dispersal Project for the week of May 25th
This week we're going to investigate the beginning of a plant's lifecycle - the seed! First you will learn about what is inside of a seed. Next you will design a seed based on one of the methods of seed dispersal (how seeds leave their parent plant). First watch Mrs. D's video for directions. Then learn more about how seeds travel by watching the BBC Video. Then try the experiment and use an observation sheet to record your results! Send us your pictures! » read more...
Modified - 05/16/2020 08:39pm Bottle Flip Project for the week of May 18th
This week we're going to investigate the physics of bottle flipping that took the internet by storm in 2016. The process involves flipping a partially filled water bottle into the air so it lands upright. It might seem simple but the physics behind it takes some practice to master. First watch Mrs. Pomi's video for directions. Then learn more from an expert by watching the Guinness World Record Video. Then try the experiment and use an observation sheet to record your results! Send us your pictures! » read more...
Modified - 05/08/2020 10:09am Clay Boat Model Project for the week of May 11th
For this week's project we’re going to learn about water displacement and how this helps very large and heavy ships float on top of the water. First watch Mrs. D's video for directions. Then learn more about boats by watching the SciShow Kids video. Then try the experiment and use an observation sheet to record your results! Send us your pictures! » read more...
Modified - 05/01/2020 02:01pm Make a Glacier! Project for the week of May 4th
This experiment will help you understand how glaciers can change the Earth's landscape! Use the plastic cups provided in this week's packet. First watch Mrs. Pomi's video for directions. Then learn more about glaciers by watching the Free School video. Then try the experiment and use an observation sheet to record your results! Send us your pictures! » read more...
Modified - 04/23/2020 06:58pm Saltwater vs Freshwater Project for the week of April 27th
This week we will continue to study water on our Blue Planet Earth! We will be learning some differences between saltwater and freshwater. Watch the video of Mrs. D for directions and also the Crash Course Kids Video. Then try the experiment! Send us pictures of it and use your observation sheet to draw what happens. You can try it with room temperature water, cold water, or warm water. Is there a difference? » read more...
Modified - 04/17/2020 10:48am Water Cycle In A Bag Project for the week of April 20th
Watch the video of Mrs. Pomi and the Crash Course Kids Video. Then using the baggie and sharpie provided in this week's packet try the experiment! Send us pictures of it and use your observation sheet to draw what happens. You can try it with room temperature water, cold water, warm water or even ice cubes! Is there a difference? » read more...
Modified - 04/17/2020 10:39am Pluto Rover Project for the Week of April 13th
This is the 1st hands on science project for K-6. Please watch Mrs. D's video first, and then the Lowell Observatory Video. For more information go to the NASA Kids website link and the video on NASA's 2020 Mars Rover. » read more...
Modified - 04/12/2020 09:58pm Steelhead Release Video
