    Course Description:


    This science course aims to develop your abilities as readers, writers, and thinkers. This year, we will be exploring topics in chemistry, astronomy and earth science. We will use a variety of resources throughout the year, including non-fiction books, articles, internet resources, videos, and experiments/ investigations to help further your understanding. The goal of this class is not just to memorize information but to prepare you for high school and beyond by developing strong inquiry, analysis, and communication skills. I look forward to spending this year watching you all grow as scientists!
