Science and Career Curriculum

The last two weeks Greg Jr. and Carol went on a number of expeditions aka ‘field trips’ to explore biology, physics, and chemistry. They visited the Space and Science Center, the Provincial Mueseum, and the Valley Zoo.

Friday we sat downto talk about what he enjoyed the most and what was most memorable. As it turns out his real interest in in Mechanics, which we knew but wanted to expose him to other learning opportunities.

We discovered that he has a real interest in physics and chemistry. Our plan is to incorporate the physics and chemistry that take place in mechanics and internal combustion engines as a way to explore his interests in physics and chemistry.

This way he has a subject that interests him – mechanics – plus he is able to explore it from a physics and chemistry perspective as well. 🙂
