  • We begin the year with Exploring the Universe.  This includes many topics like telescopes that are used to see the universe.  We also discuss and review topics such as stars and constellations.  We do work with the  Solar System which may include the sun, planets, asteroids, and meteorites.  We also look into our Earth and the seasons of the year.  

 

We will do hand-on learning as much as possible as well as videos and written work.
