Use the calendar links below to identify: big science ideas, key standard targets for each lesson, and assessments.
Week 1 - Water Observations
Do all liquids behave like water? How does soap and salt affect water surface tension? How does the size of the drop affect its motion on a slope?How does heat energy change the water? How do we change liquids to solids?How is an observation different than an inference? Where does water go when it evaporates? How does surface area affect evaporation?What holds more water gravel or soil? Can you design a water wheel that can lift a weight?Week 7 & 8 - WaterworksCan you use evidence to describe how people effect the water quality in our community?
