Educating Our Parents: Understanding the Central Point District Curriculum
The Science curriculum at Central Point schools provides students with opportunities to use their senses when exploring a topic. When they are young, students will explore plants and animals up close so that they can see, and touch while they learn. As they get older some of the classes take field trips Table Rock or to south Slough and the time pools at Cape Aragon State Park, to explore what there is to see in nature. These students can then take biology, geology, or chemistry, thanks to the foundation built.
Reading is also an important part of the curriculum and students learn about manydifferent types of books. Some of the classes will read books like “Nature’s fury” to find out how to read for information. Others may learn about tall tales by reading stories such as “Give It All You Got.” When they reach high school, students have already learned that books offer many different types of adventure, and they are exposed to Shakespeare or some classic American literature.

Chalk Talk: First Grade Science
In first grade children are ready to explore their world. Each state may be a little different, as far as what to expect, but they generally learn about rocks and soil, changes such as water to ice, and living and non-living systems. By the time these student are through first grade they will be able to talk about water and marine life. They will also be able to look at items and tell the differences and similarities between the item, as well as place items in different categories. These first grade students know that there are many different types of materials in the earth and they can talk about the different stages that a butterfly or a tadpole experiences. It is clear that the world of a first grade student expands quite a bit in a year, and this is just the beginning of opening their eyes to the world of science.
