Description:  We will explore simple machines (inclined planes, levers, pulleys, gears) with K'NEX, and physics with Real Science 4 Kids and Critical Thinking first semester. Second semester we will explore astronomy with Apologia. Since children learn best by doing, around half of the class time each week will incorporate hands-on experiments and activities. The focus here is to make science fun and hands-on.
