The science of matter and energy, and their properties and interactions in fields including mechanics, acoustics, optics, heat, electricity, magnetism, radiation, and atomic and nuclear science. Physics is the science of how things work.
During week 6 and week 7 the students build projects that show what they have learned in the physics unit.
The entire journey of building days begun by collecting household useful waste materials like milk, pasta, juice cartons, boxes, plastic bottles, cardboard boxes and many more, generously donated by grade 4 and grade 5 students. (Of Course Empty :) ).
First the students were divided into groups. Next was time to put the thinking caps on and do some innovation. The students spend one full lesson to conceptualize an idea and plan possible course of action. They displayed their idea in a written plan, clear circuit diagram and step wise building process.
In the following lessons, students applied that knowledge to successfully incorporate each part into the physical project.Students included concepts they learned, such as how electricity, magnets, sound and light work.
The students were assessed on the basis of the following points in the project:
- electricity, magnets, light, sound
- followed a plan that they have written and drawn
- did not waste materials
- all team members participated
The Invention Convention project helped kids learn science the easy, creative and hands-on way by using stuffs you can easily find in house. It was a fun filled and exciting learning process. Some of the projects are displayed in the school library and due to overwhelming response , the students even voted for the best three projects. The winners of the Science Project Competition is A Magnetic Ball Game made by students from grade 4.
The winning team members:
First Place: 4D Enes Ugan, Signe Yhuel , Saga Stenqvist and Carl Sjöbacka : THE MAGNETIC BALL GAME
Second Place: 4D Jennifer Popis, Elin Lundh, Nova Palm : THE DONUT CAR
Third Place: 5A Ivar Oscarson, Fares Mohammad : HELP THE HEDGEHOG GAME
