Service Description

Note: This is an online class. IPHG is excited to bring you this science course from Quest in Science! This is the first semester of a year long course on Earth and its systems. The second half of the course will be offered in the spring and registered for separately. To better understand our Earth, we will examine the interaction among all its processes: the hydrosphere, geosphere, biosphere and atmosphere. We will take a hands-on approach to studying rocks and minerals, plate tectonics, mountain building, volcanoes, and earthquakes. We will investigate the powerful forces that shape the ocean shores and floors. We will study weathering and erosion and how our earth is constantly changing. We examine both the continuous rock and water cycles. We will also focus on earth’s natural resources. Students will learn how and why air moves and creates weather. They will create a model of our solar system to obtain a better understanding of the scale of the universe. Students will learn how to measure the relative distances to the stars and discuss the concept of time. To conclude our course, students will make a presentation on their favorite Earth Science topic from the year of which they have conducted further research * Cost of this class includes a material kit for each student. Class Dates: Week 1 9/8 Week 2- 9/15 Week 3- 9/22 Week 4- 9/29 Week 5- 10/6 Week 6- 10/13 Week 7- 10/20 Week 8- 10/27 Week 9- 11/3 Week 10- 11/10 Week 11- 11/17 Week 12- 11/24- No class Week 13- 12/1 Week 14- 12/8 Week 15- 12/ 15 About Quest in Science: Quest in Science is a dedicated team of experienced and trained teaching specialists, offering a rigorous and inspiring in school science enrichment curriculum for grades K - 8.  In each lesson, students are involved in hands-on experiments that challenge them to think critically, solve problems, learn teamwork, and discover the relationship of science to other subjects and real life. Students participate, learn, and carry their enthusiasm home with them. Quest in Science lessons encourage students to observe, measure, collect and analyze data, make hypotheses, and draw conclusions. Our student scientists learn that asking the right question is much more important than getting the "right" answers.
