         Science instruction will include an inquiry and hands-on approach.  This is accomplished through field trips, classroom experiments, and grade level learning lab stations.  The science notebook will be an important tool in this process.  Students will record their observations, sketches, diagrams, experiments, and  questions in their science notebook.  Students will learn how to think like scientists using scientific process skills.  As the year goes on, students will become real scientists by questioning and analyzing the world around them.
