Kindergarten Science

Kindergarten 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 day and night cycle, the effects of the sun’s light on Earth, as well as an exploration of a variety of Earth’s materials. Physical science focuses on exploring how non-living things move, how they are classified, and what happens when they are taken apart and put back together. Life science units include a study of the five senses, personal hygiene, comparing living vs. non-living things, and investigating a variety of plants and animals.
