Science 3 (Hybrid)
Through a banded standards approach, students will study Biology, Taxonomy, and Human Anatomy. Science 3 gives students an up-close look at the observable world and the forces behind what we can see. Students focus on Physics (energy, gravity, sound, electricity, and machines) and Biology (life, cells, plants and photosynthesis, plant growth, protists, frogs, butterflies, ecosystems, food cycle, water cycle, air cycle, the human body and animals). Students learn how living things are categorized and named (taxonomy). They discover biological processes and how they work through hands-on experiments and projects. Students will build a greenhouse and conduct botany experiments to understand what living things need. You and your children will learn through hands-on activities and interesting books such as Usborne Science Encyclopedia, Magic School Bus, two TOPS: Green Thumbs books and more. You'll return to these same subjects at deeper levels many times in the years ahead. Science 3 experiments are coordinated with the TOPS: Green Thumbs books and are based on the growth of living things
