Field Trip to Gas Science Museum

Fourth Grade inquirers grow their knowledge at the Tokyo Gas Science Museum. It was a fun field trip where we made many connections to all that we have learned in the How the World Works- Energy unit of inquiry.  

Fourth graders are currently building and experimenting in their Energy unit of Inquiry.  We took a field trip to the Tokyo Gas Museum in order to gain new insights and make connections to their current knowledge of energy.  

          

Through out the How the World Works unit of inquiry, fourth graders have learned about the different forms of energy- thermal, electrical, mechanical, kinetic, light, and sound.  They have also explored how energy is transferred and transformed using their toys from home to demonstrate this process.
