We are just about to kick off our Physical Science unit! This unit will last nine weeks and will cover the areas of matter, energy, electricity, and magnets! Each week, we will focus on a new lesson while also working on our ongoing science projects related to physical science. For our first week, we will focus on measuring matter. We will look at liquids, gases, and solids and determine the best ways to measure their volume. 

For our science projects, our first week will be all about making observations. Choose a topic from those I have provided for you on the lesson page, or come up with your own. Spend the week looking at the world and thinking about what you are interested in learning more about. 

Before your start the first lesson, watch the screencast below so you will know how to navigate this website.


    My name is Mrs. Erickson and I love SCIENCE! I have such a fantastic group of scientists to work with this year and I enjoy watching as they make discoveries about the amazing world in which we live!
