Science Summary

At Live Oak, Science is an integral part of learning, which capitalizes on children’s natural curiosity about their world. By applying scientific skills and thinking routines, students develop an understanding of the universe and practice using that understanding to help others. The curriculum includes the use of research materials, experiential activities, discussion, cooperative learning and field trips, and covers the physical, life, and earth sciences. Throughout the grades, students are expected to be actively involved in the scientific process, becoming keen observers, modelers, debaters, and teachers.
