• Mrs. Dymond’s Fourth Grade Science

    Welcome to Science!

    This school year, your child will be engaged in a tremendous amount of investigations and research. Students will be responsible for documenting all investigations in their science notebook, using the Inquiry process. The science notebook is a major part of the science grade. Students will have quizzes and a final assessments. Students are encouraged to use their science notebook during each test.
    Here are activities to help with understand the concepts of erosion, weathering, and deposition:

    Weathering: Always be looking around your environment for breaking or changing shape or color in the ground, buildings, etc...
    Erosion: When there is a storm, observe the water and wind, What is happening... share your observations with me, Mrs. Dymond.
    Deposition: Always be looking for evidence of deposition, ex: piles of leaves, dirt, mud etc...
    When observing, have your child make a list of observations (sees, feels, hears, smells) from those observations, make questions and I wonders, if there is a problem, create a solution. 
    This year is all about phenomenon learning: Here is a great video to build your understanding.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OWqg2d_kK8w
