Vasquez, Heather D.

Mrs. Vasquez Science Lab

The Hawkins Elementary Science Curriculum has been designed to support and reinforce learning that takes place not only in the classroom but in the lab and outdoors as well. Each year students are taught concepts and units that have been designed to  build knowledge, skills, and a life long scientific thinking. Our science curriculum has two parts that work hand in hand. One is the classroom and the other is the science lab. The students are able to work with facts and terminology in the classroom then come to the science lab to apply their knowledge with hands on learning. In the science lab the students will be using the scientific method in order to problem solve situations. Our Goal in the science lab is to help students understand how to problem solve and apply this method with all learning.
