The Country School

The Lower School Science program at The Country School (TCS) structures the students’ science experience utilizing Pearson’s Interactive Science Curriculum. This curriculum cultivates the students as scientists to acquire proficiency in investigations and the scientific method. Each grade introduces scientific research and issues investigations with experiences for the students to explore and process. Student data and observations drive the science curriculum. Students document all-weather and soil observations and evidence in a science journal during each class. All data collected will be analyzed by Lower school students. This grant will supply TCS with measurement equipment that the students will use to take observation. Data will be reported to GLOBE.

 

Grant amount: $1,190
