science units in first grade include Weather, Living Things, and Balls
and Ramps. Descriptions of each unit are provided below:
construct and use a variety of tools that help them learn to read
thermometers, estimate wind, gauge rainfall and recognize cloud
formations. They collect and record weather data and consider how
weather phenomena affect their daily lives.
explore nature outside and observe changes in a tree, as well as in the
plants and animals around the tree. They consider the needs of living
things as they build classroom terraria.
Balls and Ramps
Students observe and compare properties of different balls and experiment with them both on the ground and on ramps.
