First graders visit the Science Room twice a week for 40 minutes each time.
In 2016-17, we are transitioning to NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards). Currently we have three units - one per trimester:
- Fall: Earth, Moon, and Stars (Space Systems)
- Winter: Copying Nature for Human Protection
- Spring: Making Sound and Seeing Light
Throughout the unit your child may occasionally bring a project home: be sure to ask them about it!
Follow me on Twitter (@HolmesScience) to get a snapshot of what's happening!
Some weeks, your child will be posting a picture of their learning in their Seesaw folder; sometimes I post a snippet. Seesaw is a fantastic digital learning journal app. There's a parent app so you can see what is posted by your child (not everything is posted!) Check with your child's homeroom teacher for the parent access code.
