Science


Grade Six

Science Dept. LogoThis science curriculum is the integration of physical, biological, earth and environmental topics. Concept development and scientific process skills are emphasized as essential goals. To achieve literacy, students practice inquiry-based science and use higher order thinking skills in problem solving. Technology is used as students explore, analyze and present their findings.

Grade Seven

At this level, a hands on approach is applied to the study of science. This course is designed to enhance curiosity through individual and group research and experimentation. Students are directed in activities toward a final solution yet given the freedom to construct and evaluate their own ideas and concepts. Laboratory activities are designed to reinforce subject matter that is discussed in class and to generate a deeper understanding and appreciation for all the silences and the role students will play in the future as they become the social leaders and policy makers of tomorrow. The general effects of the decisions we make today are also discussed in class, giving the students a better understanding of how decisions are made as well as what results may occur.

Grade Eight

This hands-on science course is designed to enhance curiosity through individual and group research and experimentation. Throughout the year, students will be engaged in a variety of activities geared towards developing deep understanding of the essential concepts within the curriculum.

I. SCIENTIFIC METHODS AND MEASUREMENT
