Class Description and Goals
Science is mankind’s effort to learn about our world through the processes of observation and experimentation. Along with learning basic science processes and skills, our class will be focusing on the following areas this year:
Unit 1 – Scientific Processes & Investigating Flow of Energy
Unit 2 – Organisms & Their Environments
Unit 3 – Factors Affecting Earth Systems
Unit 4 – Characteristics of the Solar System
Unit 5 – Cell Structures and Functions
Unit 6 - Body Systems & Homeostasis
Unit 7 – Plant Systems & Homeostasis
Unit 8 – Genetics
Unit 9 – Adaptations in Plants & Animals
My main goal as your teacher is to help students succeed both in the classroom and in life. Science is a fascinating and applicable subject that helps us better understand the workings of the world around us. Even more important, though, I want each student to fall in love with learning. No matter how old we get, our ability to learn and understand new things plays an important role in our lives. I want each student to become lifelong learners!
