Unit One: Newton's Laws

For our first unit, we are going to learn about Newton's Laws. We think that learning about how gravity and motion works is very important. Firstly, we will go over the first law; which is: "Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion unless an external force is applied to it."

It basically is dealing with inertia. For example, this law says that if you throw a ball, it will keep going until an something else stops it. Gravity, a person, a tree, or something else could be that force.

Second, we will go over the second law; which is: "The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma. Acceleration and force are vectors (as indicated by their symbols being displayed in slant bold font); in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector." This law is saying that if a force is applied to something, it will cause a change in velocity. For example, if you throw a ball and someone knocks it away, a force is changing its velocity.

Lastly, we will cover the third law; which is: "For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction." This law is the thing that happens when you step out of a boat onto land. When you step out, the boat will be pushed back. This could possibly trip you if you are not careful! Students will look up these laws on the Internet and write an example of each of the laws. They will also present their examples on the computer or in front of the class. That is what our first unit would be like.

Unit Two: Tornadoes?

Our second unit will be tornadoes. We will discover how the tornado forms and how the air circulates and becomes a funnel. Another thing that we will learn is what kind of tornadoes there are, from simple dust devils to full F5 tornadoes. We will also learn about the clouds that warn when a tornado is coming. Another thing that our class will learn is the amount of damage tornadoes cause each year in the United States and how much it costs. Another thing that the students will do is build a diagram of a tornado and use computers to research it. They will also present an essay about the ranking of tornadoes.

Unit Three: Ancient Ocean

No we are not talking about when your grandpa was a kid, prehistoric is when the dinosaurs ruled the earth! We will be learning about the different stages of how the ocean could have been formed, and what weird and wonderful creatures inhabited the sea. We will show an experiment to show how the ocean was possibly formed, and how it could shrink over time. We will find what kind of creatures are here in the ocean today. The students will compose an essay or put together a presentation about one ancient ocean creature. The students will have to present the evolution and Creation side of the formation of the world now, without leaning toward either side.
