Class II Science
Class II science students begin their year by reinforcing their knowledge of the metric system. Estimating and converting measurements is a focus for the students. Students learn about classifying monocots and dicots and collect seeds during the botany unit. All the parts of the plant are discussed as students learn the job performed by each part of the plant. In the human biology unit, children learn about various body systems. Zoology is the next area of study, with many hands-on activities and research dealing with the various phyla of invertebrates. Meteorology is exciting because it is always changing. The children predict upcoming weather by using weather instruments and observing what is currently happening in the weather.
