We’ve made it halfway through the year now, can you believe it? Our second semester focuses on how we apply what we’ve learned about motion, forces, energy, changes, and waves! Our upcoming units include: Astronomy, Weather/Climate, Genetics, and Humans in Ecosystems. We will start by understanding what a scale model of the solar system is and then gain an understanding of how we have studied the Universe! Ever look out at the night sky and wonder what’s out there? Well, this unit may provide more questions than answers, once you start to unravel the mysteries of our Solar System! Check the Astronomy page at the right for MANY activities to pique your astronomy questions!
