Meet Our Science Teachers!
Ms. Pat and Ms. Lauren have been with DUMC Preschool for over 20 years. As co-teachers, they have combined their love of science to create a new science program for our 4 year-old and TK classes. Our students visit science one time a month for a hands-on learning experience!
Just as listening to stories, and learning the alphabet introduces young children to the world of literacy, inquire science gives children the building blocks to learn how to observe their world, ask questions, and solve problems
Each Science class focuses on the 7 steps of the Scientific Method:
Ask a question
Create a hypothesis
Test your hypothesis through an experiment
Make an observation
Analyze results and draw a conclusion
Present the findings
Areas of Focus
Each month , the class focuses on a specific topic related to the world around us.
A few examples of the topics covered are:
Chemical and physical reactions
The goal of our science program is to grow each child's ability to solve problems, and become great thinkers. And of course, having loads of fun while doing so!!
