Science

IMG_1219_640x480_00The science curriculum at St. Brendan has three primary objectives. These objectives include assisting each student in developing the ability to (1) analyze scientific systems found within a variety of situations, (2) investigate questions through valid experimental techniques, and (3) apply technology & relevant science concepts to solving a problem.

To accomplish these objectives the science instruction focuses on teaching the curriculum through a three pronged approach; this approach emphasizes the use of (1) critical thinking, (2) collaboration skills, and (3) creative thinking techniques.

5th grade focuses upon the following Domains of Science:
– Ecology and biological systems
– Biology: Arthropods, ornithology
