During Biology, students will learn how to identify and classify different aspects of their surroundings and learn about the needs and adaptations of living and non-living things. In Chemistry, students will learn about the properties of materials and the difference between chemical and physical changes. While learning about Earth Science, students will learn about weather patterns, the water cycle as well as how natural disasters occur. During Physical Sciences, students will be immersed in how objects move, learning about forces and creating their own investigations that test the laws of physics. Learning about space will offer an opportunity for students to further explore their curiosity about the universe, they will learn about space exploration and about significant historical figures that have made considerable contributions to space science.
