Curriculum Areas/Learning Outcomes
Connection: Your child will hear about the development of the science of motion, force and energy. They will work with a phenomenological process of discovery in this unit that will allow them to first observe a phenomenon, then hear about the law. This process gives rise to an inner feeling for the law and is the very essence of curiosity.
Science: Concept: Forces influence the motion of an object.
Connection: Your child will hear about Newton’s laws of motion as well as observe several demonstrations of the six simple machines. They will have opportunities to make hypotheses as well as design and create their own simple machines.
Concept: An object’s motion can be predicted, analyzed, and described.
Connection: Your child will observe many demonstrations to support their deepening understanding of the phenomenon of motion, force, and energy.
