• girl  Welcome To Science Lab  DNA

  • Introduction
    This will be an exciting year for all of us: you, your child, and myself. I have been in education for 15years. I began my teaching career at Advance Head Start. After developing a strong desire for educating scholars, I attended the University of Houston, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science Degree in Education. Two years later I attended Grand Canyon University and obtained my Master's Degree in Reading with an Emphasis in Curriculum and Instructions.

    Introduction to Science  
     
    (1) Science,  as defined by the National Academy of Sciences, is the "use of evidence to construct testable explanations and predictions of natural phenomena, as well as the knowledge generated through this process." 
     
    (2) Recurring themes are pervasive in sciences, mathematics, and technology. These ideas transcend disciplinary boundaries and include patterns, cycles, systems, models, and change and constancy.
     
    (3) The study of elementary science includes planning safely implementing classroom and outdoor investigations using scientific processes, including inquiry methods, analyzing information, making informed decisions, and using tools to collect and record information, while addressing the major concepts and vocabulary, in the context of physical, earth, and life sciences. Districts are encouraged to facilitate classroom and outdoor investigation for at least 80% of instructional time.
