    Grades: 5-8

    Students will engage in “hands on” and a student centered approach to learning science. The course focuses on the study of life and life processes. It allows the students to develop concepts in life science and critical thinking through observation and experimentation. Throughout the year students will explore life science as a process, chemistry related to living organisms,cell structures and functions, genetics and heredity, evolution, diversity of living organisms and their ecological roles, and an introduction to animal structure and function.

    Life Science Grade Level Assessments: $25 (optional add-on)

    Grade level assessments provide data for families to check mastery of state Life Science standards. The test can be taken at anytime during the year, but a full 40-70 minutes will need to be devoted to the test time. After the test is completed the family will receive a pdf copy of the results and a recommendation sheet. Grade level assessments are great for students leaving the school year mid year, new Physical Science students, and for students who have just completed a course to check mastery of topics. 

    Hybrid Live Zoom Format: Families will be provided the times available for group classes, or the student can Zoom 1-on-1 with the instructor. Students in the hybrid program meet once a week for a live session, and continue work in Google Classroom the rest of the week. 

    Live Format Information: This class is offered in two ways: 1) self paced 2) live Zoom. If you would like this course offered via live Zoom then you will register on this page. Live Zoom classes are a great way for students to get access to a certified science teacher for lessons/slideshows/lab help. The class will meet once a week for 45 minutes for the weekly lesson, and then students will continue in Google Classroom the rest of the week. In Google Classroom students will find 4-5 assignments each week, practice assessments, and tests. During the live format, many times students will take live assessments via Quizizz, practice notecards with the instructor, perform labs and participate in discusssions over weekly science topics. Families can request for this session to be 1:1 or group. If the family prefers a group session then the family will be emailed when 2-3 others sign up. If we do not have enough for a group then the class will be offered the course 1:1 instead. After making a payment, families will receive an email asking for a few days of the week and times that work best to schedule the weekly Zoom. Weekly Zoom classes will meet for a session to begin the week, and then students will work in Google Classroom to finish the weekly assignments. The family will need to pace the class to finish the week's assignments before the next upcoming Zoom to keep a steady pace for the course.
