Science K introduces emerging learners to the knowledge and skills that will help them discover and understand the natural world around them. In this course, students learn to formulate questions, to predict, and to investigate. They use basic scientific tools, such as a magnifying glass, a ruler, and a thermometer, to make observations and draw on those observations to communicate their findings. They learn to use their five senses as observational tools as well. They deploy their observational skills to describe animals and plants, their basic needs for survival, and their environments. Students discover the effect of sunlight on Earth’s surfaces and the difference between sun and shade. Students explore weather types, weather patterns, and seasonal changes. They also examine the characteristics of force, including the difference between a push and a pull. This course includes a printed Parent and Teacher Guide that will help you support your student’s learning.
