I expect students to BE scientists! We will observe and question the natural world, think critically, perform experiments, and draw conclusions related to science. The science curriculum will integrate mathematics, reading, and writing. We will study matter, weather, experimental design, the solar system, and many environmental issues. By the end of the school year, your child will possess an age-appropriate understanding of the scientific world and be able to conduct scientific investigations on his or her own.
Students should study, on average, 10-15 minutes every night they have science class. Students will also have 10-15 minutes of homework every night they have science. Students must complete the homework assignments in order to be eligible for test retakes.
