Students explore the physical properties of water, sand, and bubbles and how each moves. Classes may focus on phenomena such as sinking and floating, bubble making, or measurement.

Myself and Others and The Senses
Students investigate similarities and differences between each other, especially with respect to their height, eyes, hair, skin, and hands. Students learn to use their senses as tool with which to observe and describe the world of objects around them.

Students create and maintain a woodland habitat in the classroom containing pine seedlings, moss, pill bugs, and bess beetles. Students also set up, observe, and maintain a freshwater habitat consisting of plants, pond snails, and guppies.
