    Social Studies

    In addition to Language arts and Math, your student will be using the Scott Foresman textbook for California Social Studies.  The program includes a text, digital and active paths to offer varying ways to meet the needs of all individual students. 



    Science - Project Lead the Way and Technology, and Engineering is Elementary

    Project Lead the Way is our main STEM curriculum. In fourth grade, students focus on forces and collisions, energy conversion, the human brain, and computers as a brain. Additionally, we will be using the website Scratch.mitedu to teach basic computer programming to students, in preparation for the robotics modules in fifth grade. Our room does also have two 3D printers and we will be using the website Tinkercad to teach some basic 3D printing design principles.
