Earth, Life Sciences, Force & Motion – Grades 5-8
Ohio State Standards Grades 5-8: Demonstrate an understanding of how living systems function and how they interact with the physical environment. Students must demonstrate an understanding about how Earth systems and processes interact in the geosphere resulting in the habitability of Earth. Students must demonstrate an understanding of how the concepts and principles of energy, matter, motion and forces explain Earth systems, the solar system and the universe.
Earth, Life and Force & Motion are complex subjects with a lot of abstract concepts, information and terminology – It is easy to become overwhelmed!
This FOUR day workshop focuses on making The Universe, Characteristics of Earth, Diversity and Interdependence of Life more understandable. The workshop teaches content while modeling effective middle school science curriculum and pedagogy you can use in your own classroom with your students!
Newton’s First, Second and Third Laws deal with Force & Motion – it is the foundation of the Middle School Physical Science Standards. Learning scientific concepts such as Motion, Balanced and Unbalanced Forces, Speed, Direction, Position, and Velocity becomes possible as we explore these ideas using discrepant events and projects easily transferred to your own classroom!
Dates: Classes are from 8:30 AM-3:30 PM.
August 5-8, 2013
