Welcome to Advanced Academics
The advanced academics curriculum encompasses math, language arts, and scientific investigation. We will begin the year studying ocean currents, water sainity and density, the layers of the ocean, sea animals and plants, and more! Students will participate in in-class book studies. Our 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders will use their knowledge to try and locate fictional shipwrecked families and present for "Rescue Day". All students will complete an independent project at the end of the year.
