Early Childhood Science

  • Overview

    It is the mission of Richland County School District One to ensure that every elementary school student receives a high-quality science education. Furthermore, we are committed to preparing our students to become college and career ready, by providing them with opportunities for exploration, collaboration and problem-solving. Our efforts to support both teaching and learning are demonstrated through the utilization of our 5Es Science Content Framework (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend and Evaluate) and the creation of our curriculum units. Additionally, our goal is to help instill a love for science within all students and to adequately prepare them for careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics. The following chart provides you with a year at a glance for grades K-2.
