Grade Three PYP Explores Science│三年級國際班的“科學”探究

It’s been a dynamic learning experience this unit in Grade Three! We are currently exploring our science-based unit:How The World Works.

本學期開始,三年級的同學們就開啟了新的探索之路,本單元他們探究的主題是:世界如何運作

In this unit, our students have taken on the role of scientists. They’ve learned about the properties of matter and have used their knowledge of phase changes to make ice cream. They’ve explored the properties of solids, liquids and gases in engaging learning centers. They’ve inquired into electrical energy and have built their very own circuits. They are now in the process of understanding different forms of energy and how they work.

本單元,同學們紛紛變成了小科學家。他們學習了物質的性質,并運用物理變化的原理制造了冰激凌。他們探究了固體、液體和氣體的性質,探究了電能,動手制作了電路。目前,他們正在學習能量的不同形式以及它們是如何運作的。

Wednesday’s trip to the Science and Technology Museum was a blast! Our third grade students loved engaging in the hands-on displays and activities the museum had to offer. Students were able to explore the four different kinds of energy we have been learning about.

3月20日,同學們又開啟了一段激動人心的科技館之旅。三年級的同學們盡情體驗著科技館中的各種項目,并探究了我們學過的四種不同的能量。

But the learning didn’t stop there- the students’ curiosity was also triggered by the range of other science topics in the museum. They had ample time to explore and inquire into the things that interested them.

除此之外,同學們對館內其他的科學主題也非常感興趣,他們有充足的時間探究他們感興趣的東西。

On this field trip, our students were given the opportunity to deepen their understanding of our unit on energy in an engaging, hands-on manner. That is what the PYP is all about! :)

本次實踐活動,同學們對本單元關于能量的學習更加深入,動手能力得到了提高,這也正充分體現了我們PYP的課程理念!
