### Properties of Gases and Liquids

- Lesson plan -

Students will: recognize and identify the properties of gases and liquids in terms of shape, volume and mass, understand why solids have a fixed shape while liquids and gases do not.

### Make a Computer Program

- Lesson plan -

Students cooperate and learn the basics of computer programming. One student plays the role of the programmer. The other plays the role of the computer.

### Energy and Work

- Lesson plan -

Students will understand that energy has the ability to cause motion or to create change and that work is done when an object moves a distance or when something undergoes a chemical change.

### Hurricanes

- Lesson plan -

Students will understand how hurricanes form, understand when and where hurricanes occur in the world, understand the scale that is used to measure hurricanes.

### Fruit or Vegetable

- Activity -

Identify and categorize fruits and vegetables.

### Transferring Energy

- Lesson plan -

Students will explore ways in which energy can be transformed from one form to another.

### Ways an Object Will Move

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the different ways an object can move (e.g., side to side, back and forth, zigzag, straight line, round and round), understand that motion is the result of a force, understand that a force is a push or a pull.

### Conductors and Insulators

- Lesson plan -

Students will: review the parts of a simple circuit, understand the meaning of the conductor and insulator, identify whether particular solids and fluids are conductors or insulators using virtual experiments.

### Sound Waves

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that sound is a vibration that travels in waves, understand frequency and amplitude, and how they define the pitch and loudness or softness of a sound.

### Mass and Volume

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the concepts of mass and volume, and how they are measured, learn about the Law of Conservation of Mass, learn about Archimedes’s displacement method, distinguish between mass and weight, be introduced to the concept of density.

### Traits in our Classroom

- Lesson plan -

Students will understand how various traits can be passed from parent to offspring.

### Newton's Three Laws of Motion

- Lesson plan -

Students will understand and explore Newton’s three laws of motion.

### Gravity

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that all objects exert a gravitational pull on each other, understand that the mass of an object and its proximity to another object will increase the strength of gravitational pull, understand the role gravity plays on Earth.

### Buoyancy

- Lesson plan -

Students will: define buoyancy, explore the concepts behind Archimedes’ principle, investigate how and why the shape of an object can determine whether it floats or sinks.

### Specific Heat

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand that the specific heat of a substance is the amount of heat energy needed to raise the temperature of one gram of that substance by one degree Celsius, understand the specific heat equation.

### Movement of Light Energy

- Lesson plan -

Students will: understand the visible light spectrum, explore the ways light can be reflected, refracted and absorbed.
