1st Grade Science

What we do:

Connecting to our yearlong Neighborhood study, we:

  • Investigate animals that live in our neighborhood (hawks, owls, butterflies and other insects), examining their needs, their habitats, their adaptations, and their interdependence with one another and with us.
  • Explore balance, motion, and stability
  • Investigate food: why we need it, where it comes from, and how people choose it

How we do it:

  • Practice the scientific process by asking questions, making and recording observations, exploring and experimenting with materials, and researching
  • Read-alouds and independent reading
  • Field trips and expert visitors
