Science in Beginners
Science is a regular part of every Beginner’s day. Children are encouraged to actively explore and share their ideas about the natural and physical world around them. Activities are hands-on and project-based. They reinforce student interests and support and extend ideas being explored in the classroom.
The focus is on using primary materials and exposure to scientific vocabulary. Below are some of the skills we work on throughout the year.
- Generating questions
- Predicting outcomes
- Making observations
- Representing knowledge through writing, drawing, building, and graphing
- Using scientific tools (magnifying glasses, eye droppers, balance scales, etc.)
