Homeschool Science Series
This fall, homeschool students will learn about the past, present, and future. We will explore fossils, learn about habitats and study what it will take to get people to Mars. Winter series: January 6 “Rocks” Come explore the rocks beneath our feet. Examine fossils, gems and minerals and become a geologist for the day. Sort and classify rocks, fossils and minerals, take a hardness test and go on a geology scavenger hunt. February 3 “Forces of Nature” Constructive and destructive forces are constantly changing the face of the Earth. Identify examples of these forces and how people use technology to understand and control the effects of these forces. This spring, our series will focus on being green. Along with SCNC’s 50th anniversary, many environmental organizations have celebrated 50 this year or in the past couple of years. In March, we’ll celebrate the 50th birthday of the Endangered Species Act. We’ll meet a few protected animals found at SCNC and learn how the ESA brought eagles and alligators back from the brink. In April, we’ll focus on Earth Day and how it brought about changes to help keep our water and air cleaner. Students will participate in experiments. Older students will also learn about cells and practice using lab equipment like a centrifuge, a vortexer and pipettes. In May, we’ll look at practices we can do to keep our planet healthy and improve the environment around us.
