Science 1st Grade Schedule

For those not familiar to the Well Trained Mind way of doing science, I thought I would do a post to show you what the schedule looks like for 1st Grade.

Animals - 20 weeks
Human Body - 10 weeks
Plants - 6 weeks

The spines are simply encyclopedias for animals and human body and then a hands-on gardening book for the study of plants in the spring.  You should be doing narrations with your science learning as you do in history.  For each study, you simply pick a topic and learn about it and then do a narration page, read some library books on the topic and even do a craft, project or experiment if you want.  The goal is exposure to material not mastery or even covering every single topic in the above categories.

My daughter's interest in learning about the human body is peeked at the moment, so we are going to begin with that instead of animals.
