Welcome to Science!
The Science Curriculum in Fauquier County is based on the premise, paraphrased from the National Science Education Standards, that learning Science is something that students do, not something that is done to them. An active learning process is envisioned in which students describe objects and events, ask questions, formulate explanations, test those explanations, and communicate their ideas to others. In this way, students build strong knowledge of science content, apply that knowledge to new problems, learn how to communicate clearly, and build critical and logical thinking skills. The students will then use these skills to approach the problems and questions that confront them daily.
