Service Description

IPHG is excited to bring to you this class from Quest in Science! This semester covers two strands of science: measurement of matter and rocks. Measure that Matter: This exciting chemistry program will engage students' curiosity for science through fun hands-on investigations and activities. Students will learn how to safely and skillfully use science tools to explore the states of matter, create properly measured mixtures, and observe chemical reactions in action. Strand 2: Rockhounds: This portion of the class will explore various questions pertaining to rocks. Where do rocks come from? Where do they go? What are rocks made of? How do we describe and classify rocks? Where can we find rocks on Earth? In this course, students become rockhounds to tackle these questions and more! We investigate the layers of the earth and learn how to read maps using scales and legends. Students observe and manipulate a large variety of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks. They describe and then classify them according to their properties. Students observe a sediment cylinder and find the layers and the sediments in the cylinder. Using sand, shells, and rocks, students make their own sediment. Students dissolve and create crystals and observe different crystal shapes in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary rocks. They learn the different ways that fossils can form and create their own simulated fossil. Each day, our busy rockhounds work together in small lab groups to perform experiments and make observations. They maintain a record of our adventures together so they will never forget how to be a rockhound! * Cost of this class includes a material kit for each student. Note: While this class meets at IPHG, instruction is given virtually by trained science professionals. The instructor will teach via a large television in the front of the classroom. IPHG staff will be in the classroom to help the instructor facilitate the class.
