Kindergarten Science lays the foundation for investigation and reasoning in science. The course includes three main domains; life science, Earth and space science, and physical science. Students will develop a basic understanding of science and skills necessary to conduct experiments, such as how to ask questions, communicate ideas, and make observations using the five senses. Students will engage in life science concepts, including animal parts and characteristics, plants and their life cycle, and basic needs of all living things. In Earth and space science, students will explore patterns in the natural world by observing and comparing different rocks, soil, and water. The course develops the student’s understanding of objects in the sky and the patterns they create, such as day and night, seasons, and weather. Students will discover the concepts of matter and energy by exploring the physical properties, location, and motion of objects and materials.
