The elementary science program is taught through a “hands on” approach. It emphasizes a laboratory method of instruction that focuses on ways of developing basic skills in the processes of science. The methodology includes skills, centering on observing, classifying, measuring and predicting, as well as others required for scientific investigations and ways of processing information. Students in this program are provided with skills and knowledge that will serve as a springboard for a future exploration of sciences as they progress through the Lifeline school system. They also acquire skills which are needed to apply concepts and utilize knowledge in a purposeful way.
The Science Department encourages students to develop and expand their scientific literacy through a broad spectrum of courses and provides opportunities for hands-on learning, experimentation, and the mastery of the content of science, as well as an appreciation of the implications of science in everyday life. Course Include: Life Science General Science Physical Science.
