4th Grade Science

Science instruction begins in January.  The main topics for fourth grade science are matter, energy, magnetism, electricity (static and current), engineering, rocks and minerals, and the water cycle.  A combination of hands-on activities, demonstrations, and work in our science text are the primary avenues for learning.  Students are expected to participate daily in small group activities, large group discussions, and independent learning.  Please encourage your child to be curious, ask questions, and listen to both the teacher and his/her classmates.
