Lower Grade Science

Science is an ongoing process. Most often there is a question or problem that initiates an investigation searching for a possible solution or solutions. There is no single prescribed scientific method to govern an investigation. It is important that students practice the skills outlined according to the NYS Math, Science, and Technology standards (http://www.p12.nysed.gov/ciai/mst/pub/mststa1_2.pdf).

For our younger students (pre-k through third grade), the emphasis is on discovery. Through discovery students grow to understand the world around them as young scientists through hands on and literary investigation.
