SCIENCE & MATH ODYSSEY LEVEL 2 (5-6 years old)
                         
  Peter Rabbit and the Garden
A Basketful of Surprise
  Dinosaur Eggs-tinct?
Rabbits Hop and Chickens Walk
 
 
Life Science
What is the difference between fruits and vegetables? Explore capillary action in different flowers and plants. Investigate what’s inside a flower and their sticky role in pollination. Find out how seeds travel in water, through the air or carried by animals? How does your garden grow?
 
 
 
Chemistry & Physics
Did you know that baskets have ribs and skeletons? Explore how the positioning of paper (weaving versus parallel strips) can make a basket stronger. Experiment with the weavers and test for the properties of each materials used. Which fiber is the best fiber?
 
 
 
Life & Earth Science
Did you know that many dinosaurs were active animals with elevated metabolisms and numerous adaptations for social interaction? Compare the diet and teeth of these giant herbivores and carnivores. Take a look at their egg-laying abilities. Who is the strongest dinosaur?
 
 
 
Life Science
Did you know that there are more chickens in the world than any other bird? Investigate the life cycle of the chicken and how they hatch from eggs. Examine the muscles of bunnies to see how they are able to hop so high. Are chickens omnivores or herbivores?

Candy-licious!
Smash or Crack?
Egg-citement! Egg-cellent!
 
 
Chemistry & Physics
Did you know that the fruits of the “chocolate” tree grow directly from the trunk? Find out how marshmallows are made from mallow root sap of the cotton or okra plant. Use our secret recipe to make your own marshmallow. Can you design a hutch for rabbits to keep warm?
 
 
 
Design & Construction
Did you know that different surfaces can affect the speed of a rolling egg? Roll eggs down different slopes to see which egg can go furthest without breaking. Explore how the shape of the egg affects the way it rolls. Test to see how gravity helps!
 
 
 
Life Science and Physics
Did you know that hens only use their left functioning ovary while the right one stays dormant?  Learn about the chemistry behind dyeing eggs.  Find out that the shape of an egg is really an oblate spheroid.  Experiment with the characteristics of eggs.  They’re not really as fragile as you think!
