Lower grades (1-3) have inquiry based science instruction in the classroom. All students work on becoming keen observers, using their senses to understand what they are learning. They look, touch, smell and listen, then make predictions. Finally they learn to write about their observations in organized ways. Whenever possible, teachers incorporate science units into their language arts and/or social studies units, giving a topic an interdisciplinary approach.

In 4th and 5th grades, science instruction is offered in our state-of-the-art science room. Here students perform elaborate hands-on experiments and actively construct ideas through their own investigations. Asking questions, testing hypotheses, recording results, comparing data, building concepts and explaining findings are curriculum goals.
