All of our instruction in science aligns with grade level expectations as set by the state.
Students learn how to use the scientific process to answer scientific questions. For an experiment to be valid, students learn about 3 different types of variables:
- Controlled variables stay the same
- Manipulated (independent) variables change
- Responding (dependent) variables are measured and recorded
Learning science depends on actively doing science. Active engagement in hands-on, minds-on science learning enables students to make sense of the natural world, develop answers to their questions through inquiry, and design solutions to their problems.
Students use these scientific skills to answer those questions:
- Asking Questions
- Finding Patterns
- Describing in Detail
Students learn that science is the study of what God has created.
