Hello Frontier Families,
Welcome back! I am so excited to see our amazing students for a brand new school year. At Frontier, our young scientists are taught by two dedicated science specialists, Mrs. Wynn and myself. We see students at least twice a week depending on the letter day rotation. Kindergarten students come to my class for 30 minutes each visit and students in third, fourth and fifth grade come to Science for 60 minutes. I am so excited to have more time with our scientists this year for extend our learning of Science curriculum, experiments and STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) activities. Our curriculum is kit-based with an emphasis on hands-on, inquiry based and project-based learning.
During first quarter my scientists will be working through the following kits:
Kindergarten - 5 Senses and Myself and Others Units
These two units focus on helping kids learn about their 5 senses, how they are alike and different from others and body structures.
Third Grade - States of Matter Unit
This unit introduces students to the world of matter and its 3 main forms, solid, liquid and gases. In addition, they will be learning how outside forces/processes can change those states of matter.
Fourth Grade - Electricity and Energy Sources
This unit introduces students to energy and electricity concepts. They will learn about how energy is created, what tools are used to harness electricity and how people use energy.
Fifth Grade - Human Body Systems
This unit allows students to investigate eight body systems of the human body and how each function.
As I stated above, I am very excited to be working with our amazing students. If you have any questions, please fill free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 719-234-4600.
