‘Egg’-cellent Energy for Everyone – 4th Grade

“Egg-cellent Energy for Everyone” 4th Grade:– The Earth is a machine which can produce energy on a magnitude hard to comprehend.  Humans have discovered ways to harness this energy in renewable and non-renewable ways (ESS3-1). This program is an opportunity to compare the pros and cons of many energy sources (ESS3-2).  We will then take this information, look at it from the wildlife perspective (not just as humans) and see if there is anything we can do in our lives every day to benefit everyone longterm. Live raptors, activities/games appropriate for a variety of learners, and FUN are a part of every TRC program.

NGSS: 4-ESS3-1, 4-ESS3-2

Cross Cutting Concepts: (ESS3-1) Cause and effect relationships are routinely identified and used to explain change. (ESS3-2) These relationships can also be tested and used to explain change.

Disciplinary Core Ideas: (ESS3-1) Energy and fuels that humans use are derived from natural resources, and their use affects the environment in multiple ways.  Some resources are renewable over time, and others are not. (ESS-2) A variety of hazards result from natural processes. Humans cannot eliminate the hazards, but can take steps to reduce their impacts.

Practices of Science: Constructing explanations and designing solutions, obtaining, evaluating and communicating information

Vocabulary:  renewable, non-renewable, wind, solar, water, fossil fuels, pollution, reclamation

Who Any student, any age - we recommend keeping group size small (i.e. - class rather than assembly) so that we can get to know each group and engage in hands-on activities.
What Life Science Lessons, K-5, using live raptors as the “hook”. We can adapt any of the programs listed here to a virtual platform!
When We are available year round - most flexible from October 1 - June 1
Where We can come to you! Programs are available anytime, virtually, indoors or outside. Call to inquire about our virtual and in-person opportunities! We will work to meet your needs and bring our fun experiential programs to you in the best and safest way possible.
