Discover how our houses are wired, allowing us to control various devices independently in different rooms. Through various hands-on electricity experiments, students will explore electrically conductive and insulating materials, and will learn the parts of an electrical circuit.
Through exploration with circuit blocks, students will design and build series and parallel circuits, including the addition of switches and various devices. They will also learn to assess the differences in these circuits, and draw circuit diagrams.
Want to make some dough? Just like The Little Red Hen, students have the chance to thresh the wheat, grind the seed into flour, sniff the yeast, knead the dough, and taste a loaf – fresh out of the oven! Students also explore how to grow wheat and handle old-fashioned farming tools.
This program will help students gain a better understanding of Earth’s water systems, as they investigate the factors that affect local water quality, and discover their own important role in caring for this resource.
