The first few weeks of the new school year has been full of pretty much everything. In previous years, the semester started with almost every level studying Animals, Plants, and eventually ecosystems near midterm time.This semester, with the curriculum changed in the science program, my different classes are studying totally different subjects.My 4th graders are exploring the Solar System, to be followed by Light Energy.
The 5th graders are waist deep in Properties of Matter and will soon move on to Reproduction of Plants and Animals.Sixth grade starts the semester off with the Human Body...in a few weeks time we'll begin a unit on Animals and Life Cycles.All in all, it's science, interesting for some, boring for others. I took some pictures of some of the 6th graders playing with our hermaphrodite anatomy dummy.
