Distance Learning Opportunities

Our Distance Learning (DL) program has been growing by leaps & bounds. During the 2004-2005 school year, we unveiled our new Distance Learning Studio (thanks to a generous NEO-LINC SchoolNet grant)! With the addition of this new lab, we now have three classrooms/labs here at the Porter Program.

The DL program is fee-based and helps us offset some of our operating expenses at the center. Our Distance Learning Schedule and fee structure has been set for this school year at $120 plus any line charges.

  • All topics are aligned with the standards, benchmarks & indicators
  • Each session comes with a classroom kit with hands-on equipment for the students, a teacher guide, worksheets and follow-up activities
  • Space is limited -- on a "first come - first serve" basis. Multiple sessions can be conducted on the same day.
  • The cost is $120 plus any line charges for a 45-60 minute session
  • Postage for the sending and returning of the classroom kit is included in the $120 fee
  • Each session and the corresponding kits are designed for an average classroom size. If you have a large class (over 30) or want to double up classes, we will need to know in advance and will charge accordingly.

HERE'S OUR SCHEDULE

Title Subject Area

Marvelous Motion

Newton’s Laws of Force and Motion
This lesson is recommended for grades 3 through 8.
The time frame is 45 – 50 minutes.

Goal: This lesson will provide the students the opportunities to discover how forces affect the motion of an object. The students will be introduced to Newton’s 3 Laws of Motion, and with guidance, will apply these laws during their investigation.

Resources:

Processes That Shape Erosion and Deposition

Processes That Shape the Earth
This lesson is recommended for grades 4 through 8.
The time frame is 45 – 50 minutes.
Goal: This lesson will provide the students the opportunities to discover how erosion and deposition affect the surface of the earth. Students will compare the ages of mountains and learn about the processes that form deltas and alluvial fans. We will investigate and learn how erosion controls can slow the effect of erosion.

Resources:

Challenging Changes

Physical and Chemical Changes
This lesson is recommended for grades 4 through 6.
The time frame is 45 –50 minutes.
      

Goal: Students will be given the opportunity to become chemists. Students will observe and record the physical properties of a variety of substances and have the opportunity to combine different substances to see whether physical or chemical changes occur. Lab safety and the scientific method are stressed here.

Resources:

Mixed Bag

Scientific Inquiry
This lesson is recommended for grades 4 through 8.
The time frame is 45 – 50 minutes.
Goal: The students are given a simple task of mixing and
separating items while applying methods of scientific inquiry and identifying the physical properties of the objects. Lab safety and procedures are stressed.

Resource:

It’s Electric

Electric Circuits and Energy
This lesson is recommended for grades 4 through 8.
The time frame is 45 – 50 minutes.
Goal: Students will become familiar with how electricity is made and how circuits are formed. They will create parallel and series circuits and trace how electrical energy flows through each circuit. We will also discuss alternative forms of energy including renewable and nonrenewable resources.

Resources:

Nutrition and Chemical
Changes in the Body

Physical and Chemical Changes
Goal: We will investigate the chemical and physical changes which occur in the human digestive system. Using a life-size model, we will follow milk through each organ and discover the changes that are taking place.
