DAIRY FARM FIELD TRIP March 20, 2017Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
This week we will have one of our classic field trips to Mississippi State University’s dairy farm! We will see the facilities where the cows are kept and learn about what all they require to be healthy and happy. You will learn how the cows are milked and may even get to milk a cow yourself! And lastly, we will make a few dairy products for ourselves. See you tomorrow for our dairy trip!

Agriculture (Farm Animals) March 1, 2017Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
For centuries, certain species of animals have been domesticated for human purposes. The first was likely goats or sheep, and chickens have been domesticated for about 10,000 years! Farm animals are used for many products such as meat, eggs, dairy products, and wool as well as labor and guarding other animals. This week we will talk about all of the things in our daily life that come from these animals.
Astronomy February 22, 2017Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Civilizations, ancient and modern, have been fascinated with the stars. We navigate by them, wish on them, and seek to learn about them more everyday. The stars we see change in a consistent sequence throughout the seasons with the rotation of the Earth. With a little practice you can become familiar with many of the constellations in the night sky! We will combine our study of astronomy with last week’s lesson on planetary science and the solar system. This week’s Science Club will truly be out of this world!
Planetary Science/Solar System February 16, 2017Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Many of us dreamed of being astronauts when we were young. We would look up at the stars, the moon, and distant planets wondering what they were like. Scientists today are trying to answer some of these questions, which has brought into existence technology like the Mars rovers. We are learning more and more about our solar system and beyond, but there is still so much left to be discovered! Come learn a little bit about our planets and solar system, our “neighborhood” of the galaxy, this week.
