Science/Geography

Students are exposed to science activities throughout the year.  Most of the science activities revolve around plants and animals.  In addition, two favorite activities involve magnetism and objects that sink or float.  The students study topics such as "Living or Non-Living", "Plants or Animal", "Vertebrate or Invertebrate", "Fish, Amphibian, Reptile, Bird or Mammal", "Parts of the Plant" and even "Photosynthesis".    


The study of Geography begins with a set of land and water forms into which children pour water.  Lessons also center around a globe which is followed up with a flat Map of the Hemispheres on which the color of the continents corresponds to the color of the continents on the globe.  Students use this map as a puzzle, removing and replacing the continents.  This allows for the opportunity to learn the names of the continents and the oceans.  Additional geography activities include maps of the United States, North America and South America; children, festivals and holidays around the world; and animals of the world.
