This Science unit focuses on the form and function of structures in our built and natural environment. Your learner will engage in tactile and concrete learning activities, including hands-on demonstrations, experiments, and a building project. The curriculum helps students develop investigation and experimentation skills by testing structures and reflecting upon why they fail. Learners are engaged with full color pages and interesting and varied activities, improving their scientific understanding of the world around them, and developing independent research and analysis skills.
In this 31-page unit, your child will study the following topics:
- Types of Structures
- Center of Gravity
- Characteristics of Forces
- Why Structures Fail
- Ergonomic Designs
- Building your own Structure
As is the case with all of our units, this unit includes daily lessons, each with exercises or activities to solidify comprehension, plus answer keys.
