With two weeks of investigation and science methodology under our belts, we are now ready to begin exploring the world around us. We will start with ornithology, or the study of birds. Since there are so many different types and species of birds, this will be part 1 of 2 birding weeks. This week we will concentrate on songbirds, waterfowl such as ducks, and ground nesting birds like wild turkeys. Our activities will explore song bird behavior, eating habits, migration, and threats to survival.

This week we will be using water to investigate the scientific method.  The steps of which are as follows:

Step 1: Make an Observation

Step 2: Make a Hypothesis

Step 3: Test your Hypothesis with an Experiment

Step 4: Draw Conclusions about your Results

Step 5: Report your Results and Restate your Hypothesis if Necessary

We are ready for another year of adventure, fun, and lots of learning! This year we will begin by understanding that sometimes learning about science is like being a detective. You have to have a problem or question, gather evidence, state discoveries, and use reasoning to put the clues together! Tomorrow at our first meeting, we will be solving several fun but challenging mysteries to get our brains and questioning skills warmed up for a busy year! Get ready Science Clubbers, it’s going to be a great one!

What great luck we had at French Camp this past weekend- the forecasted rain held off and we had beautiful weather! Mr. Edwin Faughn gave a wonderful presentation on the universe and taught us about the different constellations throughout the year. We had tons of fun swimming, canoeing, camping, horseback riding, rock wall climbing, and attending Pioneer Day on Saturday. Thanks Science Club for another great year!1Sarahjump
