SCIENCE IS A WHOLE NEW WORLD! Our school has taken-off into the world of Science. We have a Science Lab that we visit twice weekly, on our Science study time. Mrs. Topinka and I co-teach as we explore the *NEXT GENERATION SCIENCE STANDARDS* Our units of study are Life Science, Energy, and Earth Systems. During this exploration, we will work as engineering teams to discover/design ideas, through research, making claims, and collecting evidence to prove our ideas correct, Your children will be writing their C.E.R. statements with confidence in no time!
Science will be taught half of each trimester. The other half Social Studies will be taught. S.T.E.A.M will allow us to design unique answers to important questions in the real world. We work and think like real engineers, to try to solve the real problems that our world faces. S.T.E.A.M stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math, and we'll combine all of those as we proceed. We learn and teach each other by using all that we know! It's amazing!
Hey Kids, before you try out any of the websites below, don't forget to visit Mrs. Topinka's site for a wonderful selection of interesting videos, and activities to enhance your science lessons. Thanks Mrs. Topinka!
