Force and Motion

Posted on

We are currently focusing on Force & Motion in science. We are looking closely at how things move. We started by talking about motion which is the movement from one place to another or physical movement like twirling, waving, etc. Things move in certain ways- according to path and direction. The students have been completing a variety of experiments measuring distance and speed, as well as, force (the push or pull). We have also looked closely at friction and gravity and will be discussing simple machines.

Our test will be January 31st. Your child should have brought home their flashcards today but if they didn’t, here is the website that contains the flashcards of key vocabulary terms that you can work on at home: Force and Motion Notecards

Sound Unit

Posted on

The children completed a variety of science experiments for our sound unit. This was a loud unit for the classrooms that were close to ours.  We were able to make horns and see how pitch changes with the length of the straw. We have been reviewing  the specific vocabulary terms for this unit. Your child should have brought home flashcards to practice last week. Our test will be on Thursday, January 12th.  An online quiz, matching game or printable flashcards can be viewed by clicking on the picture below:

If your child would like to visit websites that provide a review, as well as, allow them to experiment with sounds, instruments, pitch and vibration, click on the pictures below:
