• Science  

    Students will explore different scientific concepts combining digital resources, supplemental print, and hands-on kits along with informational text resources and various in-class explorations through Stemscopes.   Stemscopes provides opportunities utilizing the framework of Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate and Evaluate.  The topics include: 

    • Dealing with Hazardous Weather Worldwide 
    • Using Magnetic Force
    • Organisms Change over Time     



    Time will also be spent on promoting healthy living habits both inside and outside the classroom. This includes topics such as:

    • The benefits of early detection and treatment of illness
    • The health and safety methods that reduce the risks associated with dangerous situations   
    • The basic body systems and their functions
    • The key elements of a decision-making process.
  • Social Science

     The Social Science focus is inquiry driven and culturally responsive. We will be using InquirED to guide instruction to engage students in a sustained investigation of content that will culminate in students taking an informed action.  Our inquires each trimester will be:

    • Global Connections 

      • How can we act as global citizens?


    • Migration and Movement
      • How can we honor and respect our many cultures? 


    • Equality and Justice
      • How can we take steps toward equality and justice?
