In Northside, our concept-based curriculum for Science and Social Studies is interactive, hands-on, engaging, exploratory, and inquiry-based. This curriculum was developed using the required state standards within each content area and is designed to help students explore and learn about the world through observation, investigation, and communication. Students will engage in scientific and engineering practices and will design solutions to real-world problems. In grades K-4, we have created a curriculum that integrates Science and Social Studies standards, along with local story lines. In grade 5, the Science curriculum is a year-long study of general Science content and the Social Studies curriculum surveys the history of the United States.
Science at Timberwilde ES
At Timberwilde Elementary, we support the transformation of the learning experience for all students. We strive to ensure that every day, all students grow in confidence, curiosity, and capability. NISDs elementary science curriculum is aligned with the state standards (TEKS). Science instruction begins in kindergarten and continues through grade five with the content building from one grade level to the next.
The science lab and equipment provide students and teachers with the tools they need to conduct meaningful, real-world experiences with hands-on investigations and various opportunities to reflect, in order to create life-long and successful learners.
In addition to high-quality science instruction throughout the school day, students are given opportunities to enrich their learning in our after school science programs. These programs currently include young Astronauts, Robotics, STEAM, Cardboard Arcade, and Project Acorn (gardening club)
