In Kindergarten Science experiences  help students formulate answers to questions such as:

What happens if you push or pull an object harder?

Where do animals live and why do they live there?

What is the weather like today and how is it different from yesterday?”

Students develop understanding of:

Patterns and variations in local weather and the purpose of weather forecasting to prepare for, and respond to, severe weather

Students apply an understanding:

The effects of different strengths or different directions of pushes and pulls on the motion of an object to analyze a design solution

Students develop understanding of:

What plants and animals, including humans, need to survive and the relationship between their needs and where they live.

Students are expected to demonstrate grade-appropriate proficiency in:

Asking questions, developing and using models, planning and carrying out investigations

Analyzing and interpreting data

Designing solutions

Engaging in argument from evidence

Obtaining, evaluating, and communicating information

Use tools and materials to design and build a structure that will reduce the warming effect of sunlight on an area.

Make observations to determine the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surface.

Communicate solutions that will reduce the impact of humans on the land, water, air, and/or other living things in the local environment

It is going to be exciting!

Look for specific descriptions of various science experiences, and photos of our inquisitive scientists to be shared thought the school year.   S
