Class II Science

Class II 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 measuring weather, seasonal weather patterns and changes, the night sky, and the characteristics of different rocks. Physical science focuses on gravity, friction, and how different materials respond to change. Life science units include personal hygiene, identifying the basic needs of living things, and habitats of different animals.
