Earth and Space K to 2 : Fizzics Education

Earth and Space K to 2

Earth and Space K to 2

It’s all about the seasons & observable changes!

  • How does Earth’s tilt affect the seasons? Why is the Earth tilted anyway?
  • How do daily changes affect the environment? Why is daylight a different length in summer vs. winter?
  • How do clouds form and how do we measure the weather? Why do some clouds spin?

All this and more is covered in this hands-on school science incursion where students can explore these topics in detail. Students will gain an appreciation of how the world we experience is influenced by the seasons & daily cycles. Full risk assessments available on request.

​Available as a primary school science incursion within Australia or as a video conference to any school around the globe!

Online Class Version

We’ve run live interactive distance programs since 2010 and are highly experienced in making online classes engaging for students on a variety of web conferencing platforms.

  • All of the same curriculum points will be covered, but the activities may vary from those listed for face-to-face incursions.
  • Our online classes include demonstrations, Q&A, and hands-on activities (you will receive a materials list upon booking).
  • Full child protections are in place
  • We usually connect to classes & homes via Zoom, however if you wish to use a different software we can work with you on getting the connection live.
