Elementary Curriculum and Instruction



Science curriculum and instruction provides all students an authentic understanding of scientific knowledge and processes, and teaches students to be critical thinkers.  The science curriculum drives instruction where learning is achieved through the use of inquiry, the acquisition of content, experimentation, reflection, and the use of current technology.  This type of learning is vital so that students will be able to apply what they know to new situations, enabling them to make informed decisions in the future.

Guiding Principles:

  • Inquiry based learning is taught through hands on investigations in the classroom and in the field.  

  • Leaning is applied across the disciplines and beyond the classroom.

  • Vocabulary is taught in context, utilizing multiple representations.

  • Laboratory safety is modeled and practiced in investigations.

  • Teachers and students use current technology for teaching an learning.
