Uppers Course Description

What is Life? How can science help me answer this question? Through observation, experimentation, the scientific method, journaling, and hands-on projects we will delve into these questions. Our studies will be grouped into the following thematic units:

6th grade – Kingdoms of Life: Classification (Life Science/ Earth Science)

6th/7th grade –  The Secret Language of Life: Atoms and Molecules (Chemistry/Physics)

7th/8th grade –  Organization of Life: Human Biology (Anatomy/Physiology/Health)

8th grade –  Instructions of Life: Heredity, Genetics and Genetic Engineering (Life Science/ Technology)

Uppers students will also participate in a science fair at the end of the year. The science fair is a great opportunity for students to learn more about topics that interest them and demonstrate their understanding of scientific inquiry.
