The Birds & the Bees & the Flowers & the Trees – Elementary Level Science Series Session 3

The Birds & the Bees & the Flowers & the Trees - Elementary Level Science Series Session 3

We Have Opened a 3rd Section of the Popular Elementary-Level Science Course!

In this fun and educational 3-week session, students will learn some of the basic concepts in ecology. Learn about food webs, bees (the perfect pollinators), and the relationship between plants and animals and how they have evolved together.

The Birds & the Bees & the Flowers & the Trees is one of the 4 sessions in the Elementary Level Science Series. Each session of the Elementary Level Science Series meets 3 times over a span of 3 weeks. Each 3-week Session includes important, foundational science topics, scientific modeling, focused definitions of core science terms and phrases all in an engaging, high-interest format.

Each Session of the Elementary Level Science Series has hands-on labs that have been thoughtfully paired with written materials. Materials will be emailed 2-weeks before the class meets with guided readings, materials list, lab instructions as well as suggestions for extra activities and how to use the topics and material for project-based unit studies. During the live sessions, students can ask questions as we go over the material. Then we will work on an lab/activity as a class. Classes will be taped for anyone unable to attend a class.

For those using the REAL Science Odyssey Biology 1 curriculum, these lessons will highlight, but not duplicate, labs and activities from the course. 1st – 4th grades recommended. Course materials will be staggered depending on the grade level, science acumen of the student.

* Lab materials will be inexpensive and easy to obtain.

The Birds & the Bees & the Flowers & the Trees – Elementary Level Science Series Session 3

There are 3 meetings (1 per week for 3 weeks) covering a different topic in biology each week.

In these three weeks, there is a focus on conducting field research and making observations as a part of science investigations. Students will be encouraged to share what they learned about the life cycle of a bee.

Week 1: What the Birds Where You Live Tell You about Your Local Food Webs

Prior to class, students will collect information about the local bird populations. We will use this data for a highly engaging activity where we form hypotheses about food webs, plants, and animals where students live.

Week 2: Bees: The Life & Times of a Perfect Pollinator

There are 16,000 known species of bees.  Students will be encouraged to make outside observations of bees to learn what common species live in their area. Students will develop a scientific model showing the life cycle of one of these species. We will look at some common threats to bees and activities will be shared about what students can do to help.

Week 3: Symbiotic Relationships: Flowering Plants and Pollinators

After reading about the co-evolution of flowering plants and pollinators, students will investigate the interaction between them while conducting field research in their neighborhood. In class, we will improve on one aspect of an observed plant or animal as we hypothesize about a possible new evolutionary event.

The Birds & the Bees & the Flowers & the Trees; is one of the 4 sessions in the Elementary Level Science Series. The Elementary Level Science Series has 3 meets 3 times. Each 3-week session includes important, foundational science topics, scientific modeling, focused definitions of core science terms and phrases all in an engaging, high-interest format.

* Lab materials will be inexpensive and easy to obtain.

Materials List is on the Teachable website. All materials are inexpensive, easy to obtain, and in most cases you already will have them at home.

To interact in class: Live sessions will be best experienced with a camera and microphone. Parents will need a Zoom account (free).

Usually 2-3 hours per week of work, including class.

Students will gain an understanding of some important basic concepts in ecology

Students will learn important on-topic vocabulary

Students will learn lab technique

Students will gain an understanding of the scientific method

Students will learn about conducting field research and the importance citizen scientist

Families and learners are welcome to share any information about their individual learning preferences and needs and instructor will make accommodations that are helpful to the class.
