Circle of Life- Science (1 quarter)Instructor: Emilie EvensonUC a-g credit: NoAdd to My CoursesCircle of Life has learners explore ecosystems by examining how energy is transferred through the organisms. Learners will examine and review ecosystems and biomes. This course will focus on how energy is transferred by starting with Photosynthesis and ending with decomposing. Learners will engage and demonstrate their learning by analyzing an environmental issue and how it affects an ecosystem.*Recommended for Grade 4/5
Earth Rocks! (1 quarter)$130.00Instructor: Emilie EvensonUC a-g credit: No*Recommended for grade 4 In this 8 week course you will learn about:Learn More
- Rock Cycle
- Earth Layers
- Metamorphic Rocks
- Igneous Rocks
- Sedimentary Rocks
- Weathering and Erosion
- Identify evidence from patterns in rock formations and fossils in rock formations and fossils in rock layers for changes in a landscape over time to support an explanation for changes in a landscape over time.
- Make observations and/or measurements to provide evidence of the effects of weathering or the rate of erosion by water, ice, wind, or vegetation.
- Analyze and interpret data from maps to describe patterns of Earth’s features.
Fantastic Fuel: The Body and the Food We Feed It (1 quarter)$130.00Instructor: Erin WadeUC a-g credit: NoLearn MoreRecommended for grades 5/6Fantastic food is fuel. But...what are fantastic foods and how can they help our bodies? In this course, students will learn about all the different kinds of foods that nourish our growth and development. What part of our body does an avocado nourish? What would happen to my body if I ate ice cream for breakfast every morning? This class is a journey through our body and how certain foods help or hurt us.
I’ve got the Power (1 quarter)$130.00Instructor: Emilie EvensonUC a-g credit: No*Recommended for grade 4 This is a course that focuses on circuits, electricity and sound. Experience and learn the many ways we can generate and create energy. Next Generation Science Standards addressed:Learn More
- Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents.
- Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another.*
- Generate and compare multiple solutions that use patterns to transfer information.*
- Develop a model of waves to describe patterns in terms of amplitude and wavelength and that waves can cause objects to move.
- Develop a model to describe that light reflecting from objects and entering the eye allows objects to be seen.
- Use a model to describe that animals receive different types of information through their senses, process the information in their brain, and respond to the information in different ways.

Up and Atom! (1 quarter)$130.00Instructor: Emilie EvensonUC a-g credit: No*Recommended for Grade 5 In this course you will learn about:Learn More
- Chemical Change & Properties
- Physical Change & Properties
- Properties of Matter
- Climate Change
- Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
- Measure and graph quantities to provide evidence that regardless of the type of change that occurs when heating, cooling or mixing substances, the total weight of matter is conserved.
- Make observations and measurements to identify materials based on their properties.
- Conduct an investigation to determine whether the mixing of two or more substances results in new substances.
- Plan and carry out fair tests in which variables are controlled and failure points are considered to identify aspects of a model or prototype that can be improved.
