Science D 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, the food cycle, the water cycle, the air cycle, the human body, and animals). They'll also explore seas and oceans, and water. Rachel Carson is the highlighted scientist.
Students will build a greenhouse and conduct botany experiments to understand what living things need. They also learn how living things are categorized and named (taxonomy). They discover biological processes and how they work through hands-on experiments and projects.
