Anatomy & Physiology

« Back  |  

In this course, you will explore the relationship between structure and function and how the human body maintains homeostasis. You will apply principles learned in biology to each of the human body systems as well as how cellular transport, cellular organelles, and organic macromolecules come together in a specific organization to maintain life.

Earth & Space Science

« Back  |  

In this course, you will explore how the spheres of Earth are connected to create and maintain a habitable planet. You will apply principles learned previously about outer space, our solar system, and the planets to understand Earth’s place in outer space. You will evaluate how internal and external processes interact with one another, and will analyze current and historical data to predict what future Earth may look like.

5th Grade Science

« Back  |  

In fifth grade, students apply their understanding of scale at micro levels as they investigate changes in matter and at macro levels as they investigate patterns of genetic information and movement between Earth and Moon.

4th Grade Science

« Back  |  

In fourth grade, students apply systems and system models as they investigate how energy and the availability of resources affects Earth systems (geosphere and biosphere). They also develop an understanding of stability and change with regards to how populations of organisms and Earth have changed over time.

3rd Grade Science

« Back  |  

In third grade, students develop an understanding of systems and system models along with structure and function involving energy and matter.

2nd Grade Science

« Back  |  

In second grade, students develop an understanding of systems and system models along with energy and matter. Students develop an understanding of observable properties of matter, how energy changes matter, the distribution, and role of water and wind, and how life on Earth depends on an energy source.

1st Grade Science

« Back  |  

In first grade, students develop an understanding of causal relationships as they investigate how objects can impact other objects from a distance or by contact with each other. They also develop systems thinking as they investigate how organisms interact with Earth for survival and how life systems have cycles.
