Elementary - Science

Elementary /  Science

The Elementary School Curriculum is designed to provide students with a basic introduction to science and science concepts. Students will learn basic laboratory safety as well as basic science skills which are the building blocks for understanding higher level science. The curriculum includes Earth-Envirionmental Science, Life (Biological Science), and Phyiscal Science. It offers several types of question types (drag-and-drop, drop down, multiple choice, constructed response) to help with different students' learning styles and skills. Improved graphics and pictures enhance the students' visual experience. Click on the tabs and links below to learn more about the Elementary School Science topical areas inside Castle Learning.

Introduction to Science 

These introductory topics are foundational to the study of science and contribute to the development of scientific literacy. Through the understanding of scientific principles, methods, and inquiry techniques problems can be solved and new knowledge gained.

  • Cause/Effect Relationships
  • Classifying Objects
  • Instrumentation/Laboratory Equipment
  • Measurement
  • Safety
Earth-Environmental Science
 
Earth/Environmental Science covers a wide range of topics including the structure and components of the Earth, Meteorology, Astronomy, and Ecology
  • The Earth, Moon, and Sun
  • Locating Positions on Earth
  • The Dynamic Earth
  • Rocks & Minerals
  • Moisture, Weather, & Climate
  • Heating The Earth & Earth Energy
  • Astronomy
  • The Changing Environment
Biological Science
 
Biological/Life Science spans a vast number of topics and skills starting with the cell, the basic building block of life, and continuing the discovery of important structures and organelles and advancing into development of organ systems. Also, included is the organisms ability to "keep healthy".
  • The Cell
  • Genetics
  • Evolution
  • Ecology
  • Animal Studies
  • Plant Sutdies
Physical Sciences
 
Phyical Science covers topics in both Chemistry and Physics. Chemistry topics range from the atom- the building block of matter-, development of the Periodic Table, and chemical reactions. Physics topics range from Newton's Laws of Motion to Energy, Electricity and Magnatism, and waves. An intoduction to Nuclear Physics is included.
  • Physical Behavior Of Matter
  • Energy
  • Electricity And Magnetism
