The science curriculum is made up of the study of Natural Science, Biology, Chemistry and Physics. The students study plants and animals and their habitat, the human body, chemical reactions, machinery, electricity, and motion just to name a few. They become more aware of their own safety and the healthy care of their bodies. They develop scientific thinking which includes observation, investigation, questioning, and predicting. We believe that play is an important vehicle for learning and development. There are many hands-on experiences including experiments in which they use their five senses. Many books are read for the various units and are also available to students.
Science materials and equipment are available in the science lab and classes are encouraged to use it as much as possible. Experiments are part of each unit. Field trips are part of our learning process and they include, but not limited to: Audubon, Amoskeag Fishway, museums, and Christa McAuliffe Planetarium.
