Science We will be using the National Geographic Explorer Science textbook this year. Students will keep a science notebook in which they will be responsible for chapter vocabulary, chapter notes, labs, and observations. There will be investigations and hands-on activities to help students understand science concepts. Students will record results of experiments and write ideas learned during our science activities. The scientific process will also be reinforced throughout the school year. The 4th grade students will also participate in a Science Fair that will be held during our Open House in February. You will receive more information regarding Science Fair in January.
