This term in the STEAM room, POD 2 students have been learning about the relationship between flowers and insects. We wondered, “are they friends or foes?” I wonder what most people would choose? We also took on the challenge of learning many new scientific words to help us understand and explain what is happening in this area of science. Take this quiz to show yourself and me, just how clever you are!
This week students from Pod 2 have visited the Earth Ed centre in Ballarat to begin exploring Earth sciences. The students had the opportunity to get ‘hands on’ with lots of different activities relating to the earth. As the term continues, students will be exploring the earth and the impact of both nature and humans on our home planet.
This video describes how scientists think the earth was made. What do you think?
The Berkeley Educationwebsite says, “The word ‘science’ probably brings to mind many different pictures: a fat textbook, white lab coats and microscopes, an astronomer peering through a telescope, a naturalist in the rainforest, Einstein’s equations scribbled on a chalkboard, the launch of the space shuttle, bubbling beakers …. All of those images reflect some aspect of science, but none of them provides a full picture because science has so many facets. This term we hope to explore a range of ‘scientific ideas’ and to get us started check out this video.
Having thought a little about what science might be write in the answer garden below what you would like to learn about during our scientific explorations.
