Social Studies and Science
We will end each day with social studies or science.
Our social studies curriculum focuses on community. We will begin by building our very own classroom community at the start of the school year. Students will learn grade-level components of geography, history, civics, and economics Tuesday and Wednesday each week. Our studies will build on real-life connections and interests.
Our science curriculum was designed by our district to meet the NGSS (next generation science standards). Students will be active participants and learners during our science block. They will unlock mysteries and learn by doing. We will begin the school year learning about matter and it's interactions. Students will also enjoy hands-on learning opportunities in marine science. Formal science lessons will happen on Thursday and Friday each week, but observations and experiences will be ongoing.
