Elementary & Middle School Science

Our elementary and middle school science curriculum takes students on a tour of physical and life science themes that include: Forces & Motion, Matter, Living Systems & Processes, Earth & Space Systems, and Earth's Resources. Opportunities to practice scientific and engineering practices such as experimental design, data collection/analysis, and communicating results are woven in at each grade level. The textbooks used and specific topics covered are listed below.
