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.

At WWT, we strive to foster in every student an understanding of the nature of science in an engaging hands-on approach to learning that encourages curiosity and interest in scientific acts of discovery.
Students are fully engaged while they work together to solve science investigations and experiments. We incorporate the STEM model in all activities with a concentration on the Engineering Design Process.
Our goal is to prepare each child to be successful in this field, to instill a love for science and social studies, and for each student to be well prepared for the future.
