Welcome to 4th Grade Science and S.S.

Science is so amazing!  I use the Next Generation of Science 5 E Model.  The 5 E's represent - Engage, Explore, Explain, Elaborate & Evaluate!  Through hands on exploration and collaboration students excel in learning about the world around them.  Although we learn about a lot of different things, our main learning targets are: The Water Cycle, Land & Water Forms, Life Science (Creatures), Electricity & Magnetism.  

Social Studies 
is filled with fun facts about our state's history!  Did you know Arizona was originally denied statehood?  The government believed only rabble-rousers and outlaws lived here!  Thank goodness Abraham Lincoln came along and changed their views.

Science and Social Studies incorporates all subjects; informational text, reading, writing, and math.  That's one of the many reasons I'm so passionate about these subjects; there's so much depth to them.  I'm looking forward to igniting your child's curiosity about history and the possibilities of what can be.
