Welcome to Ms. Ford's Science Class!

Science is about doing. So this year we will be doing science -- by designing our own experiments, getting outside to explore our forest, debating tough issues, and collaborating in a team.

By the end of the year, I want all my students to see themselves as scientists. Curious, students will ask questions about the world around them. They will have the scientific tools, skills, and vocabulary to design and conduct experiments that answer their questions. They will be able to read different kinds of texts critically so that they can make informed decisions. Students will use diverse evidence to defend their opinions and conclusions.

Winship's inquiry-based science curriculum is aligned to the new Next Generation Science Standards as well as the Common Core State Standards. In a nutshell, the new standards focus on the process of doing science, rather than on specific science facts.
