This year we will be learning Science in a new and exciting way using a new program based on Project Based Inquiry Science published by Its About Time (iat.com) where we will investigate many Big Questions that scientists often ask and try to answer by designing and conducting experiments, collecting and analyzing data, building models, collaborating with your classmates, developing and sharing scientific explanations.
Syllabus: 2 units of science each semester covering many topics on Physical and Earth Sciences. We start this year with a unit called “Digging in” where we will learn how Scientists work together to solve Big Questions; We will follow this with other units such as Energy, Astronomy and Ever Changing Earth to complete this year.
