MSU DAIRY TRIP! March 18, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Another Science Club field trip is upon us! This week we will be visiting the dairy at Mississippi State University to see first-hard where some of the things we like to eat and use come from. If you’re wondering about the hows and whys of agriculture, this will be a great trip to be a part of. Keep in mind we will be around at least some livestock so comfortable, closed-toe shoes are highly recommended. See you this coming Tuesday!
Agriculture- Farm Animals March 15, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Have you ever stopped to wonder how important agriculture is in our daily life? From the clothes we wear to the food we eat, agriculture is in almost every aspect of what we do. This week we will begin our agriculture unit by exploring farm animals that we sometimes take for granted. They help with farm labor, protection of livestock, providing, food, meat, and fiber. We will learn about how they are raised, what they eat, and some of the unusual ways they play a part in our lives!
SPRING BREAK TRIP!!! March 6, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Coming up next week is spring break (whew!) for everyone, and we will be taking an overnight trip to Memphis!! We will visit the Pink Palace, stay overnight in the Memphis Zoo and spend the entire next day exploring the rest of the creatures and exhibits there. It will be a fun-filled, exciting trip. Information regarding our schedule and what to pack has already been sent, but don’t forget…NO electronics (but you may bring a camera if you like)! We will leave Ward-Stewart at 7 AM on Tuesday.
Astronomy February 27, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Get ready to delve deeper into space and study the stars. Our next topic is Astronomy, the study of celestial objects. By studying Astronomy we can learn our location in the universe, similar to how satellites tell us where we are on Earth. This week we will learn the different types of celestial bodies and the formations they make in space.
Planetary Science/Solar System February 18, 2015Posted by jessicategt in Events & Announcements.
Space, the final frontier. While there is still a lot about our Earth that remains a mystery to scientists, even more mysteries await in the seemingly boundless realm of space. We have only just begun to explore our own solar system, not to mention outside of the few planets orbiting around our Sun. This week we will compare the size and distance between the planets in our solar system, learn about lunar cycles, and more! It will be a great day for Science Club and we look forward to seeing you there!
