Early Childhood Science
The mission of Richland One is to ensure that every elementary school student receives a high-quality science education. A strong science foundation prepares students to become college-and-career-ready by providing them opportunities for exploration, collaboration, and problem-solving. The 5e Science Model (Engage, Explore, Explain, Extend, Evaluate) is a framework that supports both teaching and learning in Richland One. Additionally, students should have the opportunity to engage in science to expand their knowledge for future careers in STEM fields. The following chart provides a year at a glance for grades kindergarten through two.
