Seasonal Changes - Animals in Winter

When snowflakes start falling to the ground in the fall, have you wondered about what happens to the animals outside as it gets colder and colder? How do Canadian geese survive the winter? What about the blue jay? Or the jackrabbit hopping on the grass? In the winter, animals will either hibernate, migrate, or adapt. Let’s learn more about what the animals in our neighborhood do in the winter!

Grade 3

Hearing and Sound - Ruben's Tube

When you listen to your favourite music, hear birds singing, or hear a car horn, all these sounds reach your ears in the exact same way – as vibrations traveling through the air. When the vibrations enter your ears, they are processed by the brain as sound. In this lesson on Vibrations of Sound you will explore vibrations, discover different ways of producing sound, test how sound travels through the 3 states of matter and create devices that will either amplify or block sound.

Sky Science - See the Station

Do you ever look up at the night sky and see a star that appears to be moving? These objects are actually human made satellites in orbit around planet Earth. One such satellite is the International Space Station (ISS) and in this lesson we will explore what makes the ISS such a special satellite.

Space Exploration - Doppler Effect

Have you heard the wail of an emergency vehicle’s siren as the vehicle races toward you, and then experienced the sudden drop in pitch as it passes you? This change can be explained by the Doppler effect. The Doppler effect is the stretching or compression of sound or light waves as the source moves either towards or away from you. In this lesson you will be able to see and hear evidence of the Doppler effect, and then apply your knowledge of the Doppler effect to the emission spectrum of hydrogen!
