Explore and learn the substances that makeup everything around us and the chemistry behind it ALL!! These dynamic concepts come to life as the students move and learn!

 

Chm.1.1.1 Analyze the structure of atoms, isotopes, and ions

Chm.1.1.2 Analyze an atom in terms of the location of electrons

6.P.2.1 Recognize that all matter is made up of atoms and atoms of the same element are all alike, but are different from the atoms of other elements

6.P.2.2 Explain the effect of heat on the motion of atoms through a description of what happens to particles during a change in phase

8.P.1.1 Classify matter as elements, compounds, or mixtures based on how the atoms are packed together in arrangements

8.P.1.2 Explain how the physical properties of elements and their reactivity have been used to produce the current model of the Periodic Table of elements

Food, Nutrition & Exercise in Motion (Essential Standard- 3.L.1, 4.L.2) Grades 3-4

Students will ACTIVELY see, EXPERIENCE and UNDERSTAND the importance and benefits of developing a healthy lifestyle which includes making good food choices in addition to incorporating daily exercise all while promoting brain and body health. Starting  our students early on a path to a healthy lifestyle!!!! Great for all ages!!!

3.L.1.1 Compare the different functions of the skeletal and muscular system

3.L.1.2 Explain why skin is necessary for protection and for the body to remain healthy

4.L.2.1 Classify substances as food or non-food items based on their ability to provide energy and materials for survival, growth and repair of the body

4.L.2.2 Explain the role of vitamins, minerals and exercise in maintaining a healthy body

 

******

Life Cycles in Motion (Essential Standard K.L.1, 2.L.1) Pre-k - Grade 2

Bringing the life cycle of a butterfly to LIFE! Learn about each phase of the life cycle of a butterfly or frog and develop an understanding of what happens during each phase as they change. Make the phases of life cycles COME ALIVE! 

K.L.1.2 Compare characteristics of living and nonliving things in terms of their:

• Structure

• Growth

• Changes

• Movement

• Basic needs

2.L.1.1 Summarize the life cycle of animals:

• Birth

• Developing into an adult

• Reproducing

• Aging and death

******

Plant Science & Photosynthesis in Motion (Essential Standard- 3.L.2, 6.L.1) Grades 3-6

Engage in learning about the science of plants,  including their structure and function. Learn what they need to grow and the vital part they have in the environment, including how they help human/animal life.

3.L.2.1 Remember the function of the following structures as it relates to the survival of plants in their environments:

• Roots – absorb nutrients

• Stems – provide support

• Leaves – synthesize food

• Flowers – attract pollinators and produce seeds for reproduction

3.L.2.2 Explain how environmental conditions determine how well plants survive and grow

6.L.1.1 Summarize the basic structures and functions of flowering plants required for survival, reproduction and defense

6.L.1.2 Explain the significance of the processes of photosynthesis, respiration, and transpiration to the survival of green plants and other organisms

******

Properties of Matter in Motion (Essential Standard 2.P.2, 3.P.2) Grades 2-5

Students interactively explore each property of matter and engage in learning how each one FLOWS! Let’s go through these changes through movement!

2.P.2.1 Give examples of matter that change from a solid to a liquid and from a liquid to a solid by heating and cooling

3.P.2.1 Recognize that air is a substance that surrounds us, takes up space and has mass

3.P.2.2 Compare solids, liquids, and gases based on their basic properties

3.P.2.3 Summarize changes that occur to the observable properties of materials when different degrees of heat are applied to them, such as melting ice or ice cream, boiling water or an egg, or freezing water

******

 

The Earth in Motion (Essential Standard 3.E.1, 3.E.2, 5.L.2) Grades 3-5

This fun filled experience will engage students in learning about the different SPHERES that make up our great planet, what can be found in each sphere and how they are all  interconnected
