Program Details


1. Children enjoy a funny folktale about a rabbit with big feet and even bigger ears.
2. Children retell the story with Valerie using a piece of paper for their 'ears.'
3. Miss Liz Science Wiz presents the topics of gravity, force, push, pull and incline.
4. Students make predictions regarding what will happen to their paper ears as they apply force. drop them from different heights, and add paper clips to their ears.
5. Students will experiment with push and pull forces as they make their ears glide across
their desk. Students will vary the amount of force that they use.
6. Students put their string in the hole and do a 'zip line.' They increase the speed of their ears by increasing the weight using a paper clip!
7. We explore how these concepts apply to rabbits in real life.
8. We review all concepts, sign language, and the story!


Students will:
enjoy our rabbit story
engage with the sign language we introduced
be introduced to the scientific method.
explore the forces of push versus pull
learn about the concept of gravity
discover the concept of an Incline
identify the line of symmetry
work cooperatively with a partner during the experiments.
be active participants while conducting an experiment.
develop an appreciation for physical science.
be able to demonstrate push/pull with an object of their choice
be able to demonstrate gravity with an object of their choice.
