Ruskin Elementary School

Science Lab

Ruskin School's science program is a model: two part-time science math associates are solely dedicated to teaching the California Science content standards as well as the Common Core/Next Generation science standards.
Working in cooperative groups as well as individually, students learn scientific thinking processes and basic research procedures as they solve problems and carry out experiments while obtaining a meaningful understanding of science concepts.
The curriculum covers topics in earth, physical and life sciences. Students change the state of matter, dissect a squid, make fossils, crystals, earth models and a paper cup motor, learn several types of measurements, and explore a sheep's heart.

At Ruskin, science ROCKS!
