Science Resources to Support At Home Learning
Middle School - Science
Our middle school science programs are all research-based and aligned with Washington State Learning Standards.
Grade 6 - Earth Science
Earth Science units of study include:
- Earth History & Geology
- Earth Systems Interactions
- Weather and Climate
- Natural Resources and Human Impacts
- The Earth and Solar System
Grade 7 / 8 - Life & Physical Science
Each year of our two years of rotating curriculum integrates life and physical science focused on local and place-based driving questions. The two years of curriculum are organized in the following units:
Year 1: (2019-2020)
How do organisms survive and adapt to the Puget Sound Ecosystem?
How can we design creative solutions to ensure survival of Puget Sound Organisms?
- Structure and Function
- Force and Motion
- Growth and Development
- Inheritance and Variation of Traits
- Changes in Organisms over Time
Year 2: (2020-2021)
How can changes in Puget Sound ecosystems affect interacting relationships among organisms?
How can we design creative solutions to sustain our changing community?
- Matter and Its Interactions
- Energy Transfer
- Waves and Information Transfer
High School - Science
Science programs at the high school varies from school to school. Graduation requirements include 2.0 credits of laboratory science. See the High School Science Course Pathways (PDF)
Biology and Environmental Science
Chemistry and Environmental Chemistry
Most students take additional course work in science beyond the 3 course sequence recommended above. Each comprehensive high school has a selection of elective science courses too. Please refer to the course catalogs linked to each high school's webpage for a complete list.To continue learning content from the above 3 courses while at home, visit our remote learning resource document for each course. The resources are organized by topic, aligned to the course standards. The link is above at the top of this page.
