4 Science Experiments - Bouncing Balls and Balloons! (Self-Paced)

Practice the scientific method as we complete four hands-on science experiments. (Ages 5-10)

Course Summary

Includes printables, interactive set-by-step lessons, quizzes and fun! We will complete the following experiments: 1) 2-in-1 Air Pressure 2) 2-in-1 Static Electricity! We will be making your choice of either jumping frogs or hopping bunnies. Separate a pile of salt and pepper using static electricity. 3) 3-in-1 Balloon and a Bottle 4) Super Bouncy Balls and Neuton's 3rd Law of Motion

Join me in these fun hands-on lessons where I will provide step-by-step instructions for completing our science experiments. Each week we will gather supplies, print our official science journals and practice the scientific method. Each lesson there are some simplified key terms that will cover with a hands-on approach. There is a team quiz at the end of this course covering all of the key terms covered during our 4 weeks together. No account or personal information is required to play the game. Learners can compete for a top spot on the leaderboard by taking the quiz as many times as they'd like. Homework assignments include, answering the "question of the week" and sharing pictures of their completed science journals.  

WEEK ONE: 2-in-1 Air Pressure - We will test what happens when putting a balloon over a candle. What will happen with a ballon filled with water verses a balloon filled with air? Watch in awe as our balloon gets sucked down into a bottle!
WEEK TWO: 2-in-1 Static Electricity - Create either bunnies or frogs out of tissue paper and watch them hop along with static electricity! What other things can we get to hop? Lastly, can we separate salt and pepper with a magic spoon?
WEEK THREE: 3-in-1 Balloon and a Bottle - Can you blow a piece of tissue into our bottle? Can you blow up a ballon inside our bottle? Lastly, watch in amazement as we blow up our balloons without blowing into them!
WEEK FOUR: Super Bouncy Balls and Neuton's 3rd Law of Motion - After making our own super bouncy balls, we will be testing and recording different types of balls to see how high they can bounce.  

How does a “Flexible Schedule” course work?  No scheduled live video chats. Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher. Great if your learner prefers independent pacing or is uncomfortable with live video chat.

Hello parents and students,

I started Teach Me Truth Christian School because of the need for families to have a safe space for learning. After reading, "Mama Bear Apologetics", I recognized the call for a Christian education platform. Not only teaching children about the Bible, but also teaching apologetics that back up the Bible with science, logic, facts, history and intellectual reasoning. I am passionate about homesteading, homeschooling and working on becoming more independent from the world and government. Most schools in person and online censor Christianity and promote everything else - and I mean everything else! As parents, our jobs are becoming more difficult to protect our children from the evils of this world while at the same time educating about the truth. Soon after starting the online platform, God called me to start an in-person school as well. If you are interested in started a Teach Me Truth Christian School in your area, please send me an email: [email protected] 

My Teaching Style: I encourage learning through enthusiastic engagement. I believe children learn best through curiosity or play. Teaching online has been my passion for six years. I was an online English teacher with VIPKID for over three years and an Outschool teacher for three years. VIPKID taught me how to engage with students in a virtual setting. They taught me how to use props, singing and demonstrations to increase learning. I encourage student output and participation during class.

About Me: I have a bachelors degree in marketing and science. I am an entrepreneur and business owner. I have also been in the beauty industry for over 15 years. I am a homeschooling mother to my twin sons and my daughter. I am constantly seeking creative ways for my children and students to learn new things.

My Homeschooling Style: As a homeschooling mom of 4, my favorite part of teaching is sort of "tricking" them into learning. What I mean by this is, we often play learning games and sing songs. In addition to this, my children have learning games on their devices and we listen to learning songs in the car. Some of our favorite online resources include: Easy Peasy Homeschool, Education.com and Miacademy and Flock School. Some of our favorite learning games are: ABC and sight word bingo, memory match, shout-and-grab, ABC caterpillar board game, dinosaur nest game, Uno, chess, checkers, matching, fill in the blank phonics sounds and more. We love arts and craft time as well as create weekly science projects. My kiddos enjoy both live and self-paced online classes. Our kids participate in chores, taking care of our chickens, ducks, dog and cat. We love projects and currently are building a chicken coop. Lastly, our book work is a small part of learning each day.
