A Snapshot of what our future Scientists learn
Students will be learning many things as they grow throughout the years building knowledge on the previous year. In Kindergarten to second they begin learning things such as the five senses, weather, hurricanes, tornadoes and earthquakes. We expand on animals and habitats, energy and motion, earth changes, plants and Natural Resources. Third – Fifth grade works with with solids liquids, gases, The Rock Cycle, our solar system, the ocean and sea creatures. We explore the Human anatomy and systems in the body. Many of the lessons are not just written assignments but hands on as well allowing the child to build or create.
Our AOC children of today will be the future scientists of tomorrow.
A look into 2017 Third Graders
Third Graders learn all about the different types of Scientific tools they need to measure. They are given hands on problems they must solve using a Balance, ruler, Thermometer, measuring cups and tablespoons. This gives them the chance to understand the different units in measurement and is loads of fun.
I’m former Board of Education teacher since 2003. Born in Brooklyn raised in Queens. Graduated from Queens College with a degree in Secondary Education. I have taught many subjects including Math, English and now Science. Science is all about exploring and learning new things everyday. AOC has allowed me to encourage the wonder in teaching for all students.
Gardening fun with Third Graders.
Magnetism and 1 st graders
The first graders explore Magnetism and how they can control the movement of magnetic items to move from left to right and up and down. We started out by predicting if different items would be magnetic or not. Many tested various items such as paper clips, erasers, desks, chair legs, marbles and screws. The students shared what they discovered with the class.
