Educating Our Parents: Understanding the El Paso District Curriculum
Beginning in kindergarten, the mathematics curriculum shows students how this subject is used in everyday life. In elementary, two of the schools traded measurements and geometric information about a monster of their creation. With these measurements and other information, the schools built the monster. Then they shared it with a web cam to show how close their creation was to the plan. This is an introduction to math that is built on through other activities, such as running an in-class store.
The Science curriculum includes the study of animal and plant life. This includes showing how each item can have an effect on an area. Some of the classrooms study plant life and needs by having the sundew plant in their class. They can then compare it to other carnivorous plants and see how it is different from them. Other classes study animal life by caring for a class pet. These students go on to study the cells that make up each of these living things.
