All students in grades 5-8 learn the scientific method by participating in a weekly scheduled lab, along with their daily science class. They perform hands-on activities and interactive experiments that enhance learning, and reinforce key science concepts. They are able to become familiar with lab tools and use them safely.
During our science classes, along with our “book work”, we take advantage of our computer lab so that we can stay up to date and research science related topics that are happening every day. There are many informative websites that reinforce what we learn. We are also able to complete “virtual labs” that are almost as good as the real thing!
Also, depending on the science subject being studied, various field trips and projects are worked on and completed throughout the school year.
