Science

Pre-K - 5th
Pre-Kindergarten

Students will use learn to explore properties of materials, positions, and motion of objects through investigations which allow them to notice the attributes of each of these. These explorations using the five senses continue as students use attributes to classify and sort objects, make observations and predictions, problem-solve, compare and question. Students learn about sources of energy by investigating and discussing light, heat, electricity, and magnetism. This builds early understanding of life science, physical science, earth science and chemistry. Processes such of observing and recording data, posing questions, predicting, investigating and drawing conclusions can provide experiences to support literacy, math and sciences. 

Kindergarten
