Rocks, Fossils, and DInosaurs

  • Through the use of the skills of observing, classifying, collecting data, interpreting data, and manipulating data, students will investigate the properties of rocks, fossils, and dinosaurs. Students will observe and classify rocks and fossils for the basic properties of color, size, shape, and texture. Many of the rocks and fossils in this kit have their origin in New York State.  Integrated hands-on math activities are also included in this kit.

    From Seed to Plant, Egg to Adult

  • From Seed to Plant, Egg to Adult introduces students to the life cycles of plants and animals. Students will classify seeds by properties, plant seeds, care for plants, observe and record plant growth, and participate in classroom projects. Students will also observe the life cycle of a ladybug and participate in the care of a living creature. Integrated hands-on math activities are also included in this kit.  Ladybug coupons will be in your kit at delivery and take up to 3 weeks for delivery after sending coupon in for larva to arrive.

    Properties

  • Through the use of the skills of observing, classifying, and communicating students will investigate the properties of objects. Students will observe and describe objects by their color, shape, texture, size, weight, and ability to sink or float. Students will observe that objects can exist in different forms and that solids, liquids, and gases are objects. A variety of teaching strategies are incorporated in this unit. The science skills emphasized in Properties are collecting data, manipulating, observing, and predicting.

    Habitats

  • Students will identify habitats as the place where basic needs are met for the organisms that live there.  A study of the plants and animals of the five major biomes of the world will also be studied. Plant and animal adaptations are a focus. Special emphasis will be placed on observing, discussing, describing, predicting, gathering and interpreting data.  Integrated hands-on math activities are also included in this kit.

    Health: My Body Works Together

  • Students will identify major body parts and their functions, identify basic needs of living things, describe how senses help the body, describe the location of the heart and lungs and how they contribute to body function, skeletal parts, and examine how healthy food and exercise contribute to a healthy body.  The skills emphasized in the kit are observing, discussing, describing, comparing, classifying, brainstorming, interpreting data, making decisions, manipulating materials, and measuring.

     

     

    Magnets

  • The magnets kit allows students to explore magnets. Students will investigate which objects are magnetic/not magnetic, the strength of various types of magnets and the magnetic attraction through different fluids. The science skills emphasized in Magnets are observing, discussing, describing, predicting, gathering data and interpreting data.
