This is a 6-week course. New students welcome!
Students will discover how food chains represent a simple way to show the flow of energy and the feeding relationships of producers and consumers. Students will examine the six major biomes on earth and how each is represented as an ecosystem. Students will learn that seasons occur because the earth turns on its axis as it orbits the sun. Next, we will look at the different phases of the moon and how it takes a little more than 27 days to orbit earth. Students will create a model of the eight planets that orbit the sun. The last class in this session will focus on our solar system and beyond. Topics include: asteroids; meteors, constellations, comets and the Milky Way galaxy.
