Primary Earth Science 4


Fourth graders at Live Oak Academy study earth science. While investigating the heavens and the earth, students will learn about the lithosphere, the atmosphere, weather, and astronomy. The textbooks will be used primarily at home for directed reading and activities. Websites are also used in the course, both for required home assignments and optional enrichment. Class time will include lectures and simple note-taking, discussions, activities, experiments, show-and-tell, and oral sharing of experiments and reports. Home assignments include readings, science notebook work, worksheets (using the textbook or websites), drawings, experiments, journals (brief daily logs of observations), short research reports, and tests.
