We work with the FOSS Landforms Module. The module consists
of five investigations that introduce students to these fundamental concepts
in earth science: change takes place when things interact; all things change
over time; patterns of interaction and change are useful in explaining
landforms. Students also learn about some of the tools and techniques used by
cartographers and use them to depict landforms.

The FOSS Food and Nutrition Module consists of four sequential investigations that help students understand what food is, what it is made of, and how several nutrient groups contribute to healthful nutrition.

All of these experiments are helping prepare students to complete a science fair project which we will be working with shortly!
Science Companion's Energy unit!
Student will learn that energy takes many forms, and that we can observe energy all around us. Energy can move, or transfer from place to place. Sometimes it changes form as it transfers. Machines help us use energy transfers to perform useful tasks. Warm things lose heat, or transfer heat energy, to cooler things until they both become the same temperature. Some materials conduct heat energy more easily than others. Not all transfers of energy are desirable - often energy is "wasted" or transferred to non-useful forms.
