Empowering students with language-based learning differences grades 4-12
Encouraging Independent Thinkers
Siena’s elementary science program was designed using Next Generation Science standards and pulls from multiple scientific fields of study to explore cause and effect relationships and patterns. Students are guided through general concepts before engaging with real-world phenomena, where they can see more concrete examples. Students begin with studies in Geology and advance to studying Earth’s four spheres, developing a greater understanding of their interactions and/or impact on the environment. Through creative projects and presentations, students investigate these relationships as a precursor to a deeper study of the scientific process.
