Science and Social Studies

Stimulating curiosity to explore the world around us

Elementary students need many multi-sensory experiences in the basic areas of science, life, health, community, and their surroundings. The secret is to go, to do, to visit, to collect, to organize, to explore, and to question. Our focus is to stimulate interest and enthusiasm in learning about their world through a curriculum for science and social studies containing the following components:

  • Content areas: physical science, earth science, life science, community life, and geography
  • Hands-on learning and experiments
  • Field trips
  • Outdoor Education Program (Grade 6)
  • Collections, exhibits, and projects
  • Observing and recording data
  • Library skills
  • Map skills
