Class I Science

Class I science encourages and fosters a sense of wonder and curiosity about the world. Students learn about topics in earth and space science, physical science, and life science. Engineering skills are developed as students problem solve within these domains of science. Earth and space units include observing, recording, and comparing weather over time, seasonal weather patterns and changes, observations of the sun, moon, and shadows, as well as an investigation of the natural world. The planets in our solar system will also be introduced. Physical science focuses on changes in the movement of non-living things, classifying objects by their properties, states of matter, and light and sound. Life science units include personal hygiene and studying the life cycles of a variety of animals.
