In the first trimester:
- The Solids and Liquids Module provides students with physical science core ideas dealing with matter and its interactions and engineering design. The experiences help students develop an understanding about how materials are similar and different from one another and how the properties of materials relate to their use.
In second trimester:
- Students will be using the Engineering Design Process to solve engaging problems.
In the third trimester:
- The Insects and Plants Module provides experiences that heighten students' awareness of the living world. They come to know firsthand the life cycles of a number of insects. Students see the life cycles of insects unfold in real time and compare the stages exhibited by each species. At the same time, students grow one type of plant from seed and observe it through its life cycle to produce new seeds.
