What is Life? How can science help me answer this question? Through observation, experimentation, the scientific method, journaling, and hands-on projects we will delve into these questions. Our studies will be grouped into the following thematic units:
6th grade – Kingdoms of Life: Classification (Life Science/ Earth Science)
6th/7th grade – The Secret Language of Life: Atoms and Molecules (Chemistry/Physics)
7th/8th grade – Organization of Life: Human Biology (Anatomy/Physiology/Health)
8th grade – Instructions of Life: Heredity, Genetics and Genetic Engineering (Life Science/ Technology)
Uppers students will also participate in a science fair at the end of the year. The science fair is a great opportunity for students to learn more about topics that interest them and demonstrate their understanding of scientific inquiry.
