There's been a slight change on the topics for next year's Science 3-4 and 5-6.
Both classes will be studying only chemistry (instead of chemistry and physics). The following year (2013-2014) they will spend the year on physics. This allows us to incorporate zoology into the "life science" (biology/botany/zoology) year in our 4-year rotation of topics instead of having a separate year of zoology.
Next year's teachers made this decision based on their experience in teaching these subjects and using the books that we have. (We also consulted another 4-year cycle curriculum and this is the way they do it as well.) If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know or feel free to talk to Gina Lannon or Dawn Okada.
