New topics will also be introduced in first grade. Students will use their observation skills, tools, and their imaginations to explore Space Science and begin to build a base for future study of our planet and our universe.

Throughout the year, first grade students are revisiting topics they have explored before as well as exploring brand-new topics. Students will continue to build and build upon their foundations of science learning. As students revisit topics that they have explored before, their previous experiences and growing abilities will allow them to develop new and more complex understandings of the topic.
