Fourth graders can look forward to an exciting year of science learning. We will be exploring how fossils can be evidence for what Earth used to look and feel like. We will also be learning about the changes that Earth has experienced through erosion and weathering, and how some of these changes such as earthquakes and volcanoes cause sudden change that affects humans. Students will design a structure to learn how geotechnical engineers help us live in a world that is constantly changing. We will also learn about natural resources and California agriculture, energy and how it travels and transforms, special animal and plant adaptations, and how cells, tissues, and organs make up entire systems in plants and animals. Students will work in a collaborative classroom environment as they share ideas and engage in project-based learning. We'll begin the year with science lessons conducted mostly in the 4th grade room. As the year progresses we will use the science lab more often.
