Starting in second grade, students attend science 2 days a week for 45 minutes. Students study in-depth units regarding the human body, earth science, life science and physical science.
Special projects in 4th grade include the digestive system project and volcano project. Students experience the scientific investigative process by designing, conducting and reporting their own research involving the classroom worms.
All units are reinforced with hands-on activities where investigative skills are practiced. In addition, the science program is designed to increase computer skills, study skills, organizational skills, and literacy skills for expository texts.
