Science D gives students an up-close look at the observable world and the forces behind what we can see. Students focus on Biology (life, cells, plants and photosynthesis, plant growth, protists, frogs, butterflies, ecosystems, the food cycle, the water cycle, the air cycle, the human body, and animals). They also learn how living things are categorized and named (taxonomy).
The 5-Day program also looks in depth at seas and oceans and the many amazing properties of water; students also read a short biography of author and conservationist Rachel Carson.
In the hands-on experiments, students will build a greenhouse and conduct botany experiments to understand what living things need.
