Teacher Information - Science
Follow the links to find out everything you could possibly want to about the science work we will complete in the class.
I teach through a series of multi-disciplinary projects. The projects have clear scientific, 'hands-on' experiential and exploratory aspects as well as linguistic, artistic, musical and presentation goals. Students get to explore their multiple intelligences through the projects!
The subjects covered are:
- Light and Sound
- Rocks and Minerals
- Simple Machines
Detailed plans for each project appear on the Teacher Planning page at the appropriate time.
