In line with our thematic approach to learning, Science class follows a four-year rotation, and is tied into our Social Studies program. Students study Science in a logical order according to when it was discovered and first used in history. Science corresponds to our Social Studies “theme of the school”, and the four-year rotation is as follows:
- Biology, Classification, Human Body
- Earth Science, Basic Astronomy
- Physics, Computer Science
The Legacy science program is inquiry-based, and there are endless opportunities to participate in investigations and experiments. Our inquiry-based approach fosters a sense of wonder and an appreciation for science in our students. Legacy’s campus provides an outdoor science lab, complete with a barn, wildlife and a student-made garden. Students at Legacy receive science instruction daily, and we value our students’ natural curiosity about the way the world works.
