The science area in Room 203 is always changing! There are four main areas of science that we touch on each year. Plant science, physical science, animal science, and earth science. Each month the science area is changed based on the Children’s House theme. Here are the themes for the different months:
September-Earth science/animal science-oceans/ocean life (also beginning science themes such as living/nonliving, plant/animal)
October- Plant science- leaves, trees, apples, pumpkins
November- Earth Science-space, solar system, layers of the earth
December-Earth Science-geology and space continued
January- Animal Science- Mammals
February-Animal Science-Human Body
April- Animal Science-reptiles and amphibians
May-Animal Science/Plant Science-Insects and Flowers
Physical science works are always out and available in the Children’s House classroom. These works include concepts such as magnetism, magnification, sink/float, color mixing, rough/smooth, surface tension, solid, liquid, gas, etc. We also do science experiments throughout the school year!
The science area is an exciting place! Be sure to ask your child what we are learning about in science this month!
