The MSM Science Elementary Lab curriculum is divided into two, three-year cycles.
Lower Elementary and Upper Elementary levels follow the Science curriculum in the Montessori classrooms. The Science Lab teacher, a trained Montessorian, works closely with classroom teachers to integrate lessons and concepts that can be explored further in either environment. The three-year cycle is as follows:
Year One: Astronomy and Earth Science (Geology)
Year Two: Physical Science (Physics and Chemistry)
Year Three: Life Science (Botany and Zoology/Humans)
In addition to science as part of the regular classroom curriculum, Kindergarten and Lower Elementary students attend class in the MSM Science Lab weekly for one hour. Upper Elementary students have a full afternoon of Science once a week.
