There are three main science topics for the year;
will have a chance to analyze different soils, learn about the main
components of soil and what impact they have on the plants and animals
in that area. We’ll use both the woodland garden at Cambridgeport and
the Squirrel Nut Zipper Garden.
will become meteorologists by learning about the main features of
weather; cloud cover, precipitation, wind and temperature. They will
learn how to observe and record these features using appropriate tools.
We will use our observations to make suggestions about what clothing
would be smart and what kinds of outdoor activities might be a good
choice that day (the job of meteorologists)!
will be part of our spring expedition and students will explore
various life cycles of different animals and the never ending nature of
these cycles.vWe will also focus on a variety of science skills such
as; predicting, observing, questioning, doing experiments, collecting
and recording data, discussing results and ideas with peers, wondering
and changing your thinking based on new information.
