FOSS Program- Science

The elementary science curriculum is based on an inquiry approach to learning. Students are actively involved in hands-on discovery, as real scientists conducting investigations. They use scientific thinking processes to connect to what they already know, make claims, and support new findings with evidence. We aim to develop scientifically literate learners. Thus, teaching students to communicate their scientific discoveries is a focus. FOSS ( Full Option Science System ) is the program that is used in grades PreK-5. This program is aligned to our PreK-grade 12 science standards.

Grade 4 Science Units

All science units are taught using hands-on, inquiry activities that are designed to further the child’s understanding of the content and foster the natural curiosity of elementary children.

Magnetism and Electricity: This unit includes investigations designed to introduce or reinforce concepts in physical science. Students experience magnetism and electricity as related effects and learn useful applications of magnetism and electricity in everyday life.

Water: This unit helps students explore properties of water, changes in water, interactions between water and other earth materials, and how humans use water.
