Science   ani-flask.gifWithin the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), there are three distinct and equally important dimensions to learning science. These dimensions are combined to form each standard—or performance expectation. The students learn core ideas, practices, and connections. 


We will learn about the following topics:  motion and stability, from molecules to organisms, Ecosystems, heredity, biological evolution, Earth’s systems, Earth and human activity, and engineering design.


Introduction To Science:

  • Observation vs. inferences    
  • Asking questions    
  • Constant and variable    
  •  Investigation            
  • Share your results
