-The scientific method
In science we will attempt to make connections- among the branches of science, between science and history, between the scientific method and the rules of logic. We will study the animal kingdom, the human body and plants. Focusing on Biology, we will learn about cells and their functions;about the physical systems that bring living creatures nutrients and air; about the ways living creatures reproduce; and about the different characteristics that divide the animal and plant kingdom into phyla, classes, orders, and families. The children will conduct experiments, record results then read and write more about their discoveries. There will also be field trips to Glen Brook Farm in New Hampshire to compliment the Science component. We plan to attend Harvest Weekend in October and Maple Sugaring in March.
