Program Description
Curriculum Structure
The following design is an example of a  science curriculum based on a 4 part thematic approach:
Human Impact on the World
Energy and Motion
Natural Change
These themes evolve from the National Science Teachers Association Scope and Sequence Guide and represent the integration of the following scientific disciplines -- Earth; Life and Physical Science.  
The objective is to end the isolation of the various sciences and instead, demonstrate their relatedness.
Instructional Resources
Instructional Resources include Student Science Binder and appendices; teacher-constructed laboratory manual; commercial science textbook, optional; the Internet and various other forms of technology
Instructional Strategies
Instructional strategies include 1) cooperative learning activities; 2) internet discovery activities and integration of various other forms of technology such as video-streaming, student created power point presentations...;      3) teacher demonstration and modeling where needed;  4) teacher directed lecture and interactive student small group and whole class discussions and    5)* the primary educational strategy employed is through hands-on learning activities, we want our students to be "DOING" science and not just reading and writing about science*
Evaluation and Assessment Tools
Evaluation and assessment tools include 1) evaluation of cooperative learning activities; 2) tests and quizzes; 3) labs and experiments; 4) graded homework activities; 5) evaluation of hands-on activities; and 6) peer critique and analysis.
