The fourth grade science curriculum is split into three units of study.  We begin studying the world we live in by looking at the changes that happen on our Earth.  We then move into discovering how the body works and the importance of our different systems.  The year wraps up exploring the solar system and the wonders of outer space.  The focus of each unit will be on developing inquiry analysis, critical thinking, and questioning skills, while going above and beyond rote memorization.
