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 February 5th. Your child should have brought home their flashcards yesterday 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
