The earth/space science curriculum in Fort Washington begins with lessons that help students acquire the knowledge and skills to undertake scientific studies. Students learn about the various tools and techniques at their disposal, and identify both advantages and disadvantages of each. The role of forces in the universe are discussed, including Newton’s laws, Kepler’s laws of planetary motion, and the connection between the sun and the earth.

The elementary school social studies curriculum gives children a solid foundation of knowledge and skills in the areas of U.S. history, geography, economics, and political science. In geography, learners work with various tools, including GPS systems and maps, to gain a better understanding of the features of the earth’s surface. Students compare various regions of the earth using geographic and manmade features to distinguish between them. The movement of people and goods is also explored. Students also learn about various natural formations that make movement difficult, such as bodies of water, mountain ranges, and deserts.

Chalk Talk: Phrases to Outlaw When Writing Essays
There are a number of words and phrases that students should always avoid when writing a formal essay. A phrase like “since the beginning of time” might seem like a good way to introduce a topic, but it’s actually incredibly vague and very hard to prove. Another phrase commonly used by kids is “my paper is going to be about.” Such a phrase makes it evident that the writer isn’t sure how to compose an introduction. “It’s only my opinion, but…” is another phrase that kids should never use. The purpose of persuasive writing is to express an opinion, so telling the reader that it’s the authors’ opinion isn’t necessary. Furthermore, adding the “but…” gives the impression that the author is apologizing for his or her stance. Instead, students should offer their insights unapologetically. Lastly, young writers can be over reliant on words such as “very,” “like,” “things,” and “stuff.” None of these words provide any insight or specificity, so they should be replaced with more descriptive terms.
