Our focus in first grade is on the Moon, it's phases and all facts about the moon!  The children love this learning and develop skills in writing facts and conduction research on the moon.
We also have an incredible Unit on the life cycle of butterflies.  We raise them in our classroom along their life cycle and set them free in the end.  The children love to spot them on the playground after the release!
I do a unit on weather as well and we record the weather for a month.  This year we picked March, and we had snow, rain (lots of it), sun shine, windy, we got it all.  It was very exciting.
In class I like to do as much hands on science as I can.  Our school also hosts STEM nights throughout the year.  Families love attending and taking part in some fun science experiments.
