Science and Social Studies
The prevailing theme in our Kindergarten program is Growing and Changing. Throughout the year, Kindergarteners observe and discuss the growth and changes that occur around them, in nature, in their school environment, and in themselves. Units include the following: Seasons, Weather, Recycling and Trees, Me and My Family, Diversity, Manners, Health and Nutrition, Five Senses, Shelter/Building, Living Things and Life Cycles.
STEAM is the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math which provides a framework for planning and implementing daily lessons. STEAM activities emerge from collaborative planning and take place in co-curricular classes, during our weekly designated STEAM/Science lab time as well as within the classroom on a daily basis. These lessons promote creative thinking, problem solving, collaborating, making connections, and inspiring innovation. STEAM is a vital thread in our curriculum.
