Science Lab Week at a Glance

Mrs. Ledford

Dates: 11/20-21-/17

K=Hurley     1st =Benson    2nd =1/2 of Doss and 1/2 of Morton

3rd=Goss     4th =Crow

 Practice and review classroom procedures, routines and lab safety rules. Safety drills.


Force and Motion: pushes and pulls

What are pushes and pulls? Identifying pushes and pulls

Comparing the effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object. Changing direction, stopping... friction.

Engineering process. How do humans, animals, and machines use force to do work?


First Grade-Benson

What is sound? How do we make sound? How does sound travel? What can sound travel through?  What is volume? What is pitch? How do we change the pitch?

Plan and conduct investigations to provide evidence that vibrating materials can make sound and that sound can make materials vibrate.


Second Grade -1/2 of Doss and 1/2 of Morton

Structure and Properties of Matter- solids, liquids, and gases

What are the properties of solids, liquids, and gases? How do we classify matter? Identifying matter as solids, liquids, or gases.

 Physical  changes in matter. 

 2-PS1-2    2-PS4-3

Third Grade-Goss

Engineering process

What is a force? What are balanced and unbalanced forces?  What effects do balanced and unbalanced forces have on the motion of an object? Make observations and /or measurements of an object’s motion to provide evidence that a pattern can be used to predict future motion.

Design challenge Friction, momentum, inertia

3-PS2-1    3-PS-2-2

Fourth Grade-Crow

Structure, Function, and Information Processing

Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen. Comparing human and animal eyes. How can I transfer light from place to place? How does light travel? Reflecting and refracting light.

Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, heat, light, heat, and electric currents.

4-PS4-2   4-PS3-2
