1st Grade Science Online-Full Year
Science 1 brings science alive by providing students a combination of virtual lab investigations (with options for hand-on learning), interactive lessons that provide opportunities for inquiry, and an array of e-books that capture students’ attention and grow their interest in science.
The curriculum begins with an overview of what science is and how to study it. Students then focus on plant and animal traits and relationships. In the last half of the course, students explore the patterns they see in the sky and examine how sounds and light are used to communicate and help them understand their world.
This course calls for the following household materials, though they are optional, since digital versions of all labs are available:
· cardboard box, large
· composition book, notebook, or loose-leaf paper to use as a Science Notebook*
· crayons, markers, or colored pencils
· number cube
· paper clip
· pen cap
· scissors, round-end safety
*Students may choose to keep a digital Science Notebook.
